When looking for electronic health record (EHR) software, podiatrists and other specialty practitioners should look for EHR designed for their specific area of practice. Specialty EHR software for podiatrists provides templates, reports, and data capturing tools created solely for this practice area. This eliminates the need for customization of the general practice EHR software, which is both expensive and time-consuming. Additionally, the many of the features of specialty EHR for podiatrists can be leveraged to improve patient outcomes and the level of patient satisfaction with service delivery. Third-party payers, accrediting organizations, and certification bodies report they are going to be monitoring outcome data much more closely in the near future.
