The Examination Room The ongoing “margin pressure” (revenue hit) to providers is not limited to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) legislation.

How do the financial pressures physicians and hospitals are currently faced with affect the adoption, implementation, and management of effective EHR systems?

In providing various levels of Emmi product support at the care site, how do attitudes about EHR systems and budgeting at various organizational levels affect your ability to engage providers in utilizing Emmi to engage their patient populations?
