System and Process Expertise
When implementing a new Electronic Health Record (EHR), many times the need to “get the system live” as soon as possible, results in a rushed implementation of basic functionality and “out of the box” workflows. There is not always time to look at current issues and identify ways to improve processes. Many times the current problems are merely transferred into the new system. The implementation of a new EHR is just the beginning of a journey that will lead to better patient care, greater efficiencies and improved return on investment. It is true that the work will continue, so it is worth considering how you will approach the post-go-live world.
Tailoring the EHR to your organizational needs and implementing new functionality is where the real work lies. Optimization is vital to your organization’s successful long-term use of the EHR. Even if you love everything about your new EHR, optimization of the system will always be necessary due to factors such as advances in medical treatment, compliance & regulatory changes, adding of new specialties and more. Whether it is your existing EHR or a new system, for optimization to be effective, experts with clinical, operational and technical experience will need to review every facet of your system and workflows to develop an optimization plan.
