EMR Is Topic of the May 8 ‘Power Hour’

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J.—Electronic medical records and the issues surrounding EHR are the topic of the Wed. May 8 edition of the “The Power Hour,” the free weekly online radio talk show hosted by Gary Gerber, OD, founder of The Power Practice, a practice management company.

Stated Gerber, “It's on everyone's mind, so it's time for a show dedicated to all things related to electronic medical records. Joining the show will be Scott Jens, OD, CEO and founder of Revolution EHR and Mark Crowley, the sales director for Crystal Practice Management. They'll be discussing meaningful use requirements, deadlines, ICD-10, cloud computing vs. desktop and reasons why now is the time for ODs to get on the fast moving EMR train. Of course, in our usual Power Hour style, we're sure to debate the benefits of each of their products.”
