I’ve been thinking a bit about the best way to fill out the details of my EMR, EHR and HIPAA wiki and in particular the EMR and EHR matrix of companies.

I’ve recently been thinking that I just need to take an EMR company a week and send an email to someone in their company asking them to answer a list of questions. Many of the questions will be similar to an EMR RFP (Request for Proposal), but hopefully a little more general than might be included in an official EMR RFP. Then, I’d post the response to this site and use the information to update the EMR and EHR matrix.

2 questions:

  1. What questions should I ask every EMR company? (I have some ideas, but I love getting feedback)
  2. Which EMR companies should I start with or which EMR companies would like to participate?

In case you’re wondering, I think that my goal would be to help users interested in quickly reviewing information about EMR companies without having to talk to every EMR salesperson and then be on their list for the rest of eternity.
