The Path Beyond EHR Implementation: Strategies for Success

Interest in electronic health record (EHR) systems gained momentum over the last decade. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided some incentives and penalties to individuals and organizations who implemented electronic health records.  Still today, development of an EHR adoption and optimization strategy is crucial to the success of healthcare organizations. The effective use of EHRs is essential to achieve advances in healthcare quality and to improve patient safety. The challenges of adopting or optimizing an EHR system include insufficient financial resources, lack of buy-in from physicians and lack of planning for dynamic optimization.  What opportunities do hospitals, providers and ACOs have as they clear the path to move from fee-for-service to a value-based system? Executives are now looking for their ROI and how to glean actionable insights from their data.

This program discusses strategies healthcare executives need to address for the selection, planning and implementation of an EHR system, considerations for optimizing existing systems or choosing to "rip and replace".  Learn how to garner C-suite involvement and physician buy-in for going beyond a successful implementation and onto optimization. Determine if peer organizations are realizing any return on their investment since implementation.  Gain insight into how progressive leaders are taking charge of their big and small data to move the needle on patient outcomes, their financials and quality metrics.
