EHR software and EMR systems have become staples across medical practices both large and small. Powered by AI and the cloud, the market is overflowing with options, and so selecting the right EMR or EHR vendor can be a challenge.

It’s an important decision that will affect the efficiency and viability of your practice, so make your choice with care. To choose an EHR or EMR, the first step is to write a request for proposal (RFP), a document that gives information about you and your practice to the prospective vendors while soliciting them for information about their products and offerings. Let’s take a look at how to write an EHR RFP below.

Top Behavioral And Mental Health EHR/EMR Providers

2 comments

When the EMR software market first emerged, behavioral and mental health professionals had very few available choices designed to suit their specific needs. Many ended up settling for more general medical EMRs that, despite including custom templates designed for their specialty, weren’t entirely suited to their needs. In recent years it’s safe to say the tide has turned. As specialty clinics began to gain popularity, the need for mental and behavioral health software systems became evident.

Specialty healthcare providers — including mental health and behavioral health EMR providers — have begun to demand EMRs designed specifically for their needs. In some cases, this involves medical EMRs with robust, well-constructed modules focused on their specialty. However, most of the time, modern behavioral health providers are opting for specialty-specific systems. With a higher focus on behavioral and mental health than in the past, the EMR industry has jumped at the chance to meet this need. As a result, there is a wide range of mental and behavioral health EHR software available today.
