Medical Advantage Podcast Ep 14: Optimizing an EHR for FQHC Use

by | Jul 14, 2021 | Podcasts, Practice Services

Ensuring that your Electronic Health Records (EHR) system is properly set up is a crucial first step for any healthcare organization seeking the best possible performance in billing, care quality, patient satisfaction, and other areas. But each practice and healthcare organization has different needs – and may benefit from a different, more fine-tuned EHR solution. 

FQHCs – Federally-Qualified Health Centers – are no exception. Due to their unique business model, financing structure, and patient population, FQHCs have a specialized set of needs, and require an EHR that can keep up. In this episode of the Medical Advantage podcast, we revisit a conversation with Caitlin Schlappi, a registered nurse at the Alcona Health Center FQHC in northern Michigan, and Julie Chiesa, an EHR and NextGen expert at Medical Advantage, to hear how our consultants worked alongside the Alcona Health Center staff to ensure they were getting the most out of their EHR system’s workflows and capabilities. 

This is the fourteenth episode in the Medical Advantage Podcast, where each we take time each episode to discuss the ideas and technologies changing healthcare, and the best practices your organization can take to stay productive and profitable.
