EHR Vendor First Year Comparison

We have compared the first year pricing of some of the major EHR/EMR vendors based on data from the Maryland Health Care Commission website and the vendors’ own respective websites.

Choosing EHR Vendors

There are a lot of EHR companies out there, and choosing the right vendor can seem like a daunting task. The product price is only one of the aspects to consider. You also want to make sure that your EMR vendor is going to be with you for the long haul – since this will save you the money, time, and hassle of switching to a new system when the old one goes out of business.

To help you in this assessment, we have developed a comprehensive EHR vendor comparison of the top integrated EHRs as listed by Medical Economics.

When comparing EHR vendors, these are some of the things that will save you money in the long run:
• An integrated, cloud-based solution
• Compliance with government incentive programs
• Early adoption of incentive programs and standards
• Established business with a successful financial model

NextGen Office- Formerly MediTouch was one of the first EHR vendors to become 2014 Meaningful Use Stage 2 certified, and we have been ICD-10 ready since 2013. Even with government delays, early adoption of compliance standards is an important thing to look for when choosing EHR vendors. After all – EHR companies that cannot meet compliance standards deadlines either lack the technical expertise to keep up with health IT developments, or don’t have the financial resources to invest in their EHR technology.

Sometimes NO is Better than Yes

  • NO upgrade fees
  • NO expensive servers
  • NO training fees
  • NO support fees
  • NO long term contracts

Purchasing a competitor’s system can cost over $50,000 in the first year alone. This is why we offer our cloud-based solution – completely integrated with EHR, Patient Portal, Practice Management and Clearinghouse – on an affordable subscription basis
