Exclusive Readers' Choice Survey (n>3,700)

In another recent study, over 3,700 Medscape readers were surveyed on their EMR system. Users rated their EMR on 12 key features of ease of data entry, overall ease of use, reliability, easy to learn, vendor training program, vendor customer support, ease of emr implementation, interactivity with other office systems, value for the money, physician satisfaction, staff satisfaction, and patient satisfaction.
