Podiatry EMR Software Buyer's Guide

K Marsh
  • by K Marsh ,

There are over hundreds of electronic medical record software vendors in the market, a staggering number to choose from for medical practices, especially podiatrists. This guide should help you narrow down the field and select the EMR system right for your practice.

Podiatry is primarily concerned with the diseases, condition and surgery of the foot, ankle or lower extremities. Because this is such a specific field it needs a specific EMR software to tackle all the concerns that arise within it. There are many vendors that now provide a podiatry specific EMR, but how should you choose the right one?

Features of Podiatry EMR Software

Specific Templates – Because there are certain characteristics exclusive to podiatry the electronic medical record system already has templates for them in the software to make every case easier to navigate:

  • Bunions
  • Ulceration
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Foot fracture
  • Bursitis
  • Ingrown toenail
  • Heel pain
  • Gout
  • Corns
  • Plantar Warts

ICD/CPT Coding – Nature of diseases are changing with new diseases rearing their heads more often than not. Specialty specific software needs to be up-to-date with these codes because it makes diagnosis and billing much easier. Podiatry specific EMR illuminate the need to scroll through unnecessary codes and only upload codes specific to podiatry.

Image Support – Because podiatry relies heavily on X-ray, CT scan, MRI, ultrasound equipment and other visual reports the EMR software must be integrated with those devices for quicker image sharing, and compatible to house image data that can be analyzed to help monitor and detect abnormalities.

Diagrams and GraphingEMR software is also equipped with graph note taking where a digital pen can be used to chart fractures in the foot or any other details the specialist can’t find in the templates. These are then stored within patient files for immediate referencing.

Compensation Management – To help with compensation claims for disabilities through accidents or work sites for patients, podiatrists need to manage charts and files and share them with attorneys or relevant parties. The EMR software not only makes these easy to share it helps organize and store them in a way that will be acceptable to attorneys.

How to Choose Podiatry EMR Vendor

Now that you’ve narrowed down all the vendors that provide podiatry EHR software you need to narrow the selection down to those that fill your requirements as a specialty as well as a medical practice.

Size – Some vendors cater better to large practices while some are best suited to smaller ones. EMR systems are designed keeping a certain number of users, scalability and support required in mind. When selecting a vendor keep in mind the size of your practice.

System Design – The choice, essentially, is between installation of the software in your on-site computer server, or cloud-based software that is available anywhere via Internet. Which system a practice goes for depends on their personal choice and comfort level. Some doctors feel more comfortable having the system on their computer server because they feel this is more compliant with HIPAA requirements, while others need to have access to their database wherever they are. You’ll need to shortlist vendors who fulfill your needs in this department.

Certification – It makes sense to make sure the software you’re going to purchase is certified. For podiatry the certification you should be looking out for is by the ONC-Authorized Testing and Certification Body (“ONC-ATCB”). They are responsible for making sure your vendor meets Meaningful Use objectives and is HIPAA compliant.

Selecting EMR software can be stressful and exhausting, but with our detailed guide it can become, if not a little easier, much more focused to making the right choice.
