The new rules covering health records can be daunting. How should a health care enterprise implement an electronic health record (EHR) system? What vendor should it use? How should it prepare for the implementation of the system?

For members of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) those questions now have answers. The society recently formed a strategic partnership with Welch Allyn, a manufacturer of frontline medical products and solutions, to provide professional consulting to its members about EHR systems.

The company’s EHR Prep-Select service systematically guides physician practices through the complex electronic health record preparation and selection process by offering an optimal mix of expert consulting, an easy-to-follow, 10-step project plan, and an intuitive online tool that addresses the challenges associated with selecting an EHR vendor.

The Welch Allyn-ASGE collaboration will benefit members with program materials and links on the society’s website and special pricing on Prep-Select program services.
