Nick Recker's Mission: Modernizing the Way Private Practices Keep Medical Records
If your doctor still scrawls in notebooks during a medical examination, or your nurse still scribbles on Post-It notes - well, Nick Recker
is here to tell you that's all about to change.
Recker is founder of Path Forward IT, a Cincinnati-based firm that specializes in converting private practices to Electronic Medical Record systems.
"You must know your industry inside and out," Recker
advises, "and incorporate that knowledge into the value of your products and services."
, the benefits of his
product are myriad.
"It can be difficult to determine which EMR product is best to implement in order to satisfy the practice's specific needs and organizational goals," Recker
From Epic to Allscripts, NextGen to GE Centricity and Greenway, there is a virtual sea of software options to navigate.
"We help offices review their entire clinical process in preparation for an EMR implementation," Recker
says, "allowing (them) to avoid common stumbling blocks physicians often encounter during EMR implementation."
In general, Recker's advice to other entrepreneurs is to challenge yourself and your ideas on a daily basis, to prevent yourself from falling into traps: "Create a diverse advisory team of experienced professionals to review your business plans.
Present those ideas to your advisory team as if you were trying to •sell' them on your plans.
The exercise of preparing for those meetings will make you more meticulous and assure your plans are sound.
"In my opinion, the biggest challenge as an entrepreneur starting a business is being an underdog," Recker
"You must be able to articulate and demonstrate to prospective and current customers why the services or products you provide are better or more valuable than your competition."
