Survey: 5 Most Requested EMR Features Blog Feature

A growing number of physicians are implementing electronic medical records (EMR) in their respective practices. The increase in EMR adoption, however, also brings a great chance of dissatisfaction in current solutions, whether it's merely one feature or the entire software.

Capterra conducted a survey to measure EMR usage and to dive into the details of why physicians are switching. arrowsAccording to the survey, only 37 percent of respondents claimed they had switched from a prior solution to their current solution. The reasoning for that switch? The majority of responses -- 52 percent -- said it was because their previous EMR lacked certain features.

In addition, Capterra also discovered the most requested, specific features that physicians and office staff were looking for in EMR solutions.

5 Most Requested EMR Features

  1. Voice Recognition -- 29%
  2. Mobile Integration/App -- 14%
  3. Medical Dictionary -- 14%
  4. Telemedicine Capabilities -- 11%
  5. Marketing Functionality -- 10%

Furthermore, only seven percent of respondents claim to be dissatisfied with their current EMR solution. However, a lack of features is the predominant cause of that disappointment, with approximately 87 percent of those dissatisfied wanting more features.
