TMA recognizes that no one EHR fits the needs of all physician practices, and that product offerings and functionalities change frequently to meet market demands. For that reason, TMA’s ad hoc Committee on Health Information Technology and Council on Practice Management Services have refrained from endorsing specific EHR products or vendors. In lieu of endorsement, TMA has developed the following tools and resources to assist physicians with EHR selection, implementation and Meaningful Use:
EHR Comparison Tool
EMR Readiness Assessment
EHR Implementation Guide, (3rd Edition)
Meaningful Use Achievement Toolkit
Texas Regional Extension Centers (RECs)
