How The EHR Software Learning Curve will Pay Off

Posted by Janelle Pauli on Jan 7, 2019 11:45:00 AM

Sometimes we hear that eyecare practices quickly grow frustrated with newly implemented EHR software because it's too difficult to learn and the time it takes for your practice to adjust ends up being a hassle or money pit. These are frustrations that many eyecare practices have with a majority of different software systems. 

Implementing new software that affects your entire practice is a big change that comes with a learning curve that will take a bit of time to pay off, especially for practices coming from paper charts.

Today, we want to talk about a few different ways to help your practice get through the learning curve so you're able to start enjoying the benefits of a new system.
