The telehealth boom as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic has sparked discussions on how to reach the smooth integration of telehealth into electronic health records. Some telehealth platforms provide agnostic integration with a number of EHR systems, whereas some EHRs have their own telehealth solution in-house.
What works for a certain system may not necessarily be the best solution for another. There are many considerations to take into account. when choosing an EHR provider or considering a move to another.
You may wish to begin by understanding whether the vendor for whom you are operating currently provides a unified solution, or have other solutions been developed along the way. Where do you begin, and is it a fully integrated platform versus one vendor with several platforms to offer? A trade-off study should also be considered: What do you lose in feature functions with a single vendor versus integration gain? The third consideration is the case of intended use: More specialized treatment may mean having to find a more specialized solution.
