Brian Bizub 2 OrthoVise LLC is excited to announce that its CEO and Owner recently hosted a FREE webinar, sponsored by and on Thursday, February 13th. Optimize your EMR for Orthopedics: Essential Strategies that Drive Patient Engagement, Financial Success and Physician Happiness was the topic of focus.

A brief description of what Joe covered: By this point in time, approximately 80 percent of orthopedic practices and health systems have made conversions to electronic medical records. Regardless of the vendor, the change is always challenging, and creates problems that are magnified in high volume and high margin specialties like orthopedics.

These changes not only help your practice or department meet the challenges created by the electronic medical record, but will also help prepare you for the challenges of tomorrow.
