Steps to Opening a New Medical Practice: Part Three
Opening a new medical practice can be a daunting task, but the process is simple when following the right steps. This three-part blog post series will walk through the necessary steps your practice should consider prior to opening. Part one discussed what you should initially consider when opening a practice and selecting the right EHR. Part two reviewed how you can determine the needs of your practice and develop a plan to ensure you run it properly.
Step 3: Opening Your Practice
Now that you have chosen your EMR, determined your billing option, established what tools/hardware and additional software you need, now it is time to put it all together. You may decide to hire an IT person to set up your computers and network for you, or maybe you can set up your computers yourself, and have your ISP (Internet Service Provider) configure your network for you. Then you can reach out to your EMR sales executive and implementation specialist to set up and install your software package(s). You should schedule your new staff people to come in and work with your implementation person to get you and the staff trained and ready to go. Some EMRs offer some free training options (webinars, videos, etc.), and others may offer paid training options (onsite or remote) as well. Once all of your equipment is installed, and you and your staff are trained, you are ready to open.
