MedEsthetics July/August 2017 Business Consult

Technology plays an integral role in healthcare today. Not only have electronic medical records (EMR) become the law of the land, but practices also benefit from the use of practice management software and integrated sys­­tems that offer online booking, lead tracking and social media management.

Implementing EMR and practice management systems involves a number of challenges in that they are costly, they evolve rapidly and they can quickly become obsolete. Therefore, it is important to look ahead as you investigate IT vendors and products.
