Health systems using Epic have the option of implementing Community Connect to extend their EHR to non-owned community clinics and hospitals. Done well, Community Connect can enable a health system to enhance population health management, build closer relationships with community physicians, and ensure that they have a complete view of their patients’ care record. While building a Community Connect program can bring benefits, it also comes with challenges as it necessitates new roles, processes, and tools as your IT team essentially becomes an EHR vendor and provider.

We discuss the planning, staffing, and implementation considerations, whether you’re considering implementing a new Community Connect program, or whether you want to optimize an existing, mature program.

Topics covered include:

  • Strategic Alignment
  • Understanding the Costs and Pricing
  • Developing your Offering
  • Engaging with Community Providers
  • Implementation & Support
