How important are health office administrators in the decision “which EMR vendor to choose”?
As a physician, would you be more likely to use an EMR software that was taught to health office administrative students at the college level than to choose one that had other features you found optimal? Would knowing that you could fill a role in your office easily with a local job market robust with candidates trained on the software you were using sway your decision?
Staffing can be a challenge when trying to fill short-term health office roles with qualified candidates that can jump in EMR job ready.
Using an EMR in a medical office only works effectively if the health office professionals are utilizing each feature correctly.
Would it sway the decision of a hiring manager to know that a candidate was starting well versed in the EMR software the office was already using?
