Many Electronic Medical Records (EMR) Software vendors offer a lot of features but providers mostly find them redundant or perceive them as a marketing gimmick. Some of these features are actually very helpful as they are advertised, but what should concern you is whether they are relevant to your particular practice or not. You really need to look at your workflow to determine the administrative aspects of the EHR and also consult your provider to ensure that the software you are choosing only provides those features and not more than what you need.
