Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Practice Management Software for Speech-Language Pathologists
Electronic medical records (EMRs) and practice management software allow for tasks such as clinical documentation, scheduling, registration/insurance authorization, and billing functions. While Medicare and Medicaid EMR incentive programs are aimed primarily at physicians and health care facilities, other health care providers, such as speech-language pathologists and audiologists, will benefit from using these systems. If using a product that is certified by the ONC/HIT (Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology)—not all products listed below are—is important, please check the individual websites. This list of commercially available practice management software programs is provided to ASHA members, but does not constitute an endorsement of products. A product's target use/audience varies. Clinicians should evaluate products based on criteria such as overall time required to input data, stability, and reliability of the software, degree of manipulation to enter information, accessibility and adaptability of data, accessibility of hardware, and expense. Data collection is important and EMRs play a key role in this process. The last page presents a project about how SLPs used EMR for data collection.
