INTEGRIS Health successfully implements Epic’s Enterprise Electronic Health Record system with Optimum Healthcare IT and saves over $6.5M.
As a complex health system currently running five disparate Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems that was moving to Epic, INTEGRIS needed to thoughtfully and efficiently engage its operational customers to avoid automatically replicating legacy build and thoughtfully and efficiently deliver best practice workflows and build to provide their patients and staff with an optimal EHR experience within their approved budget.
INTEGRIS engaged Optimum Healthcare IT to provide end to end Implementation and Change Management support. This included, but was not limited to, onsite leadership and advisory services (Inpatient, Ambulatory, and Revenue), strategically placed analyst support, technical dress rehearsal (TDR), training and activation resources, and historical conversions Optimum also played an important role in right-sizing the ATE team for go-live support, which utilized local job fairs for CT hiring.
Over decades, INTEGRIS adopted best of practice technologies that supported leading-edge medicine. Our innate expectation to provide the highest standard of care mandated that our transition to Epic be as seamless as possible while moving at a rapid pace, and we wanted to showcase early successes to our patients and team members. Optimum Resources were critical at every step to ensure the smoothest possible technical and cultural adoption of Epic and were key to our success.
