MI2 presents OpenEMR ROI as part of ACO solution

Last weekend Dr Bowen and Tony McCormick presented information on Meaningful Use as it pertains to the Physicians Practice, talked about the “Open Source Way” and did a short demo of OpenEMR 4.0.

Part of that demo included a simple ROI calculation that was the result of a small survey of practices currently using an EMR and the cost of the system that they were using.  The result was shocking, even considering a wide margin of error.  The representative “High End” EHR had a 5 year ROI (1 physician practice), -68%,  For the “Mid Range” the ROI was -45% and for OpenEMR it was a 371%….

Beat that 🙂  –Tony
