Health IT Consultants: EHR Vendor Directory – There's an App for That

Free smartphone application for Health IT consultants helps physicians select an Electronic Health Record (EHR)

(PRWEB) March 18, 2010 -- The American Society of Health Informatics Managers, Inc. (ASHIM) today announced the release and immediate availability of a mobile application for smartphones. The free application enables Health IT Consultants to help physicians select an Electronic Health Record (EHR).

“In today’s rapidly expanding sea of EHR products, most Health IT experts develop a personal preference,” said Susan Nagel, ASHIM’s National HIT Member Services Director, “but having familiarity with only one or two EHRs is about as useful to most physicians as a mechanic who only knows one automotive maker.”

The web-enabled application, called EHRBook, searches products by keyword to narrow the EHR selection based on the preferences of the physician. It’s designed for use with the Blackberry, Android, Palm Pre and iPhone mobile platforms. “This puts an entire searchable EHR vendor directory at the consultant’s fingertips,” says Nagel, “they can quickly produce an unbiased product list while they are sitting with the physician.”

To access the EHRBook application and for more information about ASHIM visit the organization’s Web site, under the “Featured News” page.
