Today as I was reading about EMR and preparing an EMR research paper I’m doing for one of my classes I came across a great quote by paulc over on EMR Update.

Choosing an EMR is like getting married:

Unless you make a really lousy choice, you will be happier than before.. It can take as long to find an EMR as a spouse, and it’s a huge deal to divorce your EMR and wed another. I’m still waiting to see if I have a midlife crisis with my EMR.

I couldn’t agree more!! Good luck finding your spouse EMR.
