Im hoping to get some general advice on how to start and Im not sure if this is the right place for this. Im trying to help someone start their own mental health practice. I am software engineer and am comfortable setting up open emr, but I dont have much domain knowledge.
The Therapist would like to take Medicare but says they need an erm system for that. I found this post
It sounds as if openEMR does not currently meet the requirements for Medicare but that you can file for an exception.
Am I understanding this correctly? If so does is it still necessary to have an EMR system, can we not just file for an exception and use paper or excel?
Thank you for any advice you can offer.
