Electronic medical records (EMRs) and practice management software allow for maintaining clinical documentation, scheduling, insurance authorization, billing functions, and more. While Medicare and Medicaid EMR incentive programs are aimed primarily at physicians and health care facilities, other health care providers, including audiologists and speech-language pathologists, will benefit from using these systems. If it is important that the product has been certified by the ONC/HIT (Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology)—not all products listed below are—check the individual websites for more information.
This list of commercially available EMR and practice management software programs is provided to ASHA members, but does not constitute an endorsement of products. Products target different audiences and uses. 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.
ClinicNote is an EMR made specifically for speech pathologists and audiologists to utilize in private practice and university clinics. ClinicNote helps with all your clinic needs such as scheduling, billing, customizable evaluations and forms, automation in report writing, and teaching tools.
