There are a lot of costs to consider when purchasing a new practice management software. And even some costs that you might not initially think of like costs for third-party and add-on solutions. Not only is the practice management and EHR solution a big part of the costs, but most practices use a variety of other solutions to manage their practices. We're talking about tools like patient recall solutions, claim filing clearinghouses, ePrescribing, code verification, patient education tools, frame information catalogs, business analytics, and online product ordering.
