Making sure you're using your EHR to increase patient engagement can help you get the most out of your product. 

While EHRs can help to simplify your practice, you don't want to get to the point where they limit your communication with the patient. According to Physicians Practice, 70 percent of practices have reported a decrease in patient face time after EHR implementation. In order to ensure you're getting the most out of your EHR while maintaining meaningful communication, you may want to try techniques like voice dictation to speed up record creation. 

Developing a well-staged patient portal is another way your EHR can help to increase patient engagement. When they have the ability to access care information remotely, patients are likely to have more confidence in your practice. 

All in all, try to use your EHR to your patients' benefit, but never sacrifice personal communication.
