    I went through EMR sturatp in December 2010. The result was a 50% decrease in collections for 1 month and slower patient progress through our practice still at 6 months. I have always used a scribe to enable me to focus directly on the patient, and the EMR has shifted more work onto them from other clerical workers in the office. We remain about 5% less efficient now 6 months later. For new offices adopting EHR, I would recommend, based upon my experience that full loads be maintained, but that EHR be introduced on NEW PTS ONLY for 1 or 2 months until all kinks are worked out and apopropriate adjustments are made, before expanding to a larger percentage of patients. At this time I am not sure that we will ever exceed our previous productivity; however, I still believe that in the long term there will be non governmental pay-offs that exceed our 100K$ investment and similar short term loss of productivity.
