Over 85% office-based physicians and more than 95% of hospitals in the United States currently use EMR, or electronic medical records. Given these statistics, you would think that most healthcare providers have found a solution suited for their practices and needs. However, there are often reasons to migrate your patient records from one EMR or EHR provider to another.
Switching to a new electronic records system can be overwhelming for health care providers and hospitals. The conversion can be complicated if you are not familiar with data mining and digital development. Hence, you need an experienced service provider to take care of your vital patient data and help you extract your records from one platform to another.
