Epic is one of the highest consumer-rated EMRs on the market and remains one of the most popular choices for a system of record and scheduling interface. Many healthcare systems rely on the EMR and its features to fulfill multiple roles, and question the value of specific service line enhancements like Babyscripts’ obstetrics-specific Virtual Maternity Care solution.
Yet a recent survey of hospital C-suite leaders showed that, in a group traditionally committed to EMRs, nearly 60% would look outside their EMR vendor to other health IT vendors to provide new tools. Of the same group, most plan to invest in new solutions to augment their EMR. These numbers confirm the reality that the EMR cannot do everything.
