New feature: Tip of the Week

Today we are introducing a new feature here on Practice Notes: a Tip of the Week. (See the right-hand column of the blog for this week's tip.)

Starting with Houston endocrinologist Medhavi Jogi's tips on implementing an EHR, we'll bring you advice from your peers on a range of topics. Each contributor will offer a new tip each week for a few weeks.

If you have ideas for a Tip of the Week contributor or topic, e-mail me at


  1. I completely agree with tip #1. I had one vendor contact me a few weeks ahead of time, request sample templates I use, procedure forms, etc and he had a great speciality specific demo prepared. A different vendor showed up with minimal prep and it was obvious.

  2. Continue with written charts and fight the changes. The government cannot fire all the doctors of the nation.
