As a small or solo therapy practice, you may feel the the integration of an electronic record system is a waste of time. It’s not like you have a lot of clients to keep track of, so why bother? The truth is, even small therapy practices can benefit from the right system.
Of course, you’ll find many therapists who feel unhappy with an electronic record system and rightfully so. For one, EHRs and EMRs are often expensive. Some small practices cannot justify spending hundreds, even thousands on the integration of an EHR or EMR.
Another problem is that EHRs and EMRs, while comprehensive and useful, are targeted more toward physicians rather than therapists. That is where the MHR Network comes into play. It provides an affordable alternative to EHRs and EMRs designed specifically with therapists like you in mind.
Why Make the Switch?
Many small practices that have already made the switch to an electronic record system often voice displeasure. Their displeasure stems from the fact that most of the systems available are far too pricey for smaller practices and they don’t offer features therapists are likely to find useful.
You will quickly find that making the switch to the MHR Network offers plenty of advantages. You can streamline your practice, focus more on patients rather than paperwork, and free up space. When you run a small therapy practice, you don’t have a lot of room for tons of paperwork.
The MHR Network frees up space, providing you a clean, sleek looking space. It also makes it easier and faster for you to access patient information and necessary forms to provide your clients with the right services.
Understanding exactly what the MHR Network is and what features and benefits you gain from it can assist you in determining if it is right for you. Small and solo therapy practices alike are sure to appreciate everything they can gain from using the system to better their practice.
