Despite the challenges, cost and uncertain return of EHRs, practices should move quickly to adopt this tool, recommends Dr. Richard J. Baron, president and CEO of Greenhouse Internists, where the EHR is the backbone that supports the implementation of evidence-based practices. Dr. Baron shared his practice’s evidence-based guidelines experience — from working with physicians on documentation, staff training and work flow redesign to using the data to improve practice performance — during an October 6, 2009 webinar, Adopting and Implementing Evidence-Based Guidelines in the Medical Home. The 45-minute session is part of HIN’s continuing Medical Home Open House webinar series.
