Check out my new favorite toy:
The good folks over at SRSsoft, whose CEO Evan Steele is one of the few people in HIT telling the truth, pointed me to their Productivity Calculator tool. I think this should be the first step anyone takes towards purchasing an EHR!
I entered in some rough pediatric numbers - 25 kids a day, 4 days a week, $500K revenue, 32 clinical hours...and learned that losing a minute of time per visit to work on the EHR will cost a pediatrician about $26,000 a year.
Enter your numbers. Fascinating stuff.
Good work, SRSsoft.
