EHR in ASCs: Big Trends Emerging

Electronic health records are revolutionizing health care delivery at hospitals and physician offices. Now ambulatory surgery centers are seeing the benefits of EHR technology and are searching for the appropriate technology for their site.

This won't be an easy road for ASCs as the federal government offers financial incentives to hospitals and physician offices for meeting Meaningful Use criteria through the use of EHR technology, but not to ASCs. However, surgery centers still need to report quality measures to Medicare, and an EHR can make this process more efficient.

This white paper, "EHR in ASCs: Big Trends Emerging," examines the big themes in health care data collection today and how ASCs can take advantage of evolving technology to meet regulatory requirements, improve efficiency, lower costs and ultimately provide better patient care.
