Does Electronic Medical Record Work For Single
Doctor Practices?
The number of small practices and solo practitioners adopting Electronic Medical
Records (EMRs) has been found to increase steadily. Primary driving force behind
higher adoption of EMRs among solo practices is the numerous solutions offered by
EMR that fits practice requirements, size, and their budget!
Study proves beyond doubt that EMR adoption grows among
individual providers
Survey reveals that while there has been an increase in EMR adoption
among physicians managing individual clinics, there is a correlation between
EMR adoption and patient inflow. Physicians begin to realize their limited
window of opportunity for taking advantage of federal reimbursements via
digital record management technology. Solo practitioners’ EMR adoption is
expected to jump substantially, in the near future.

Factors Driving Increased Adoption of EMR Software by Solo
There are several motivational factors that cause a growing number of single
doctor practices to use EMR Software; a few have been listed below:
 Federal rules have incentivized EMR system implementation
 Ease and convenience of access to patient health records

 Web-based EMR Software offers cost-effectiveness and efficient work
 Reduction in man power and infrastructure needs in the practice
 Round the clock, unlimited support and guidance offered by the
 Multi-device compatibility and automated processes
EMR Software bodes well for Solo Practitioners
With greater autonomy offered by being the sole proprietor of the practice,
health care providers in solo practice environment may make quick decision
about migration to Electronic medical records software System. Increased
availability of effective cloud-based platforms is one of the favorable factors
that encourages EMR adoption. By reducing the amount of upfront costs,
cloud-based systems relieve practices from shouldering the burden of a
dedicated server. This model also eliminates the need for having dedicated
IT staff in the practice.
EMR Software Helps Solo and Small Practices to Improve Efficiency
Several small and individual practitioner health facilities have realized the
benefits of early implementation of EMR Software System. With vendors
constantly trying to update and improve these systems, benefits to solo
physicians keep increasing too. Following are a few of the benefits of EMR
adoption to solo practices:
 Errors are reduced in charting
 Work flow efficiency increases in the back office
 Errors in prescriptions are eliminated with E-prescriptions
 Faster collection on billing
 Easy learning possibility due to pre-customized templates
How does EMR Software improve overall Efficiency of Single Doctor
 E-Prescription Service
o Reduction in duplication
o Saves paper work
o Drug interaction checks
o Quick submission of orders electronically

 Automation of processes
o Automatic appointment reminders
o Appointment scheduling
o Online patient portal
 E-Billing Feature
o Automatic insurance eligibility checks
o Perfect Medical coding and billing
o Billing solutions offered by providers may be integrated directly
into EMR
Single user EMR Software is likely to be made mandatory for solo practices. EMR
Software exclusively designed for single doctor practices will help in easy record
maintenance, clearer billing, simplified coding, and prescription processes.
