ASCs have been slower to implement EMRs than their hospital counterparts, but Anesthesia Business Consultants President and CEO Tony Mira predicts change is inevitable.

2. Set up a way to verify how many records were received. Certain ones aren't identified for a slew of reasons, such as software updates.
