EHR Optimization| Get More From Your EHR

Move Beyond the Status Quo and Modernize with EHR Optimization 

For far too long, medical professionals have tolerated the tedious EHR quirks and flaws. When changing to a new EHR is out of the question, what else can you do? In many cases, the EHR can do what you need it to do, it just needs some adjustments along with additional training.  

Transform your EHR system from a continuous hindrance to a most helpful asset with EHR optimization – a cost-effective solution that maximizes EHR performance.

EHR Optimization Starts with a Strategy 

EHR optimization is a lot like flipping a house – you take an as-is property with a list of issues and tackle them one by one as it transforms into a desirable environment. Imagine the time savings, improved care quality, and revenue gains you would gain from a better EHR. 

Optimization strategy starts by recognizing how much an inefficient and faulty EHR costs your organization – especially burnout – every year that goes by. It is time for a change.  

Get the EHR optimization solution to unlock the full efficiency potential of your EHR – a central component of your practice operations.  

     

    Common Challenges Resolved by EHR Optimization 

    EHR optimization efforts work to clear out many barriers to a better work experience, making workflows more efficient and functional. Here are some common complaints associated with EHR usability: 

    Using the EHR is tedious as there are too many clicks, needless alerts, and ways to do the same task. EHR optimization customizes the user experience according to each role and streamlines workflows with templates, auto-filled forms, and reduction of needless alerts. 

    Documentation takes too long and is not easy to share with other providers. Clinicians and other staff find themselves entering the same information repetitively, which also results in mistakes. EHR optimization allows providers to use templates, voice dictation, or handwriting to text to make notetaking easier. Clinical decision support tools can also reduce work fatigue and mistakes. Interoperability improvements make it easier to send records to other clinicians (as with the Integrated Fax Solution). With increased efficiency, your staff may find themselves going home sooner. 

    Patient satisfaction is on the decline because the portal doesn’t work properly. EHR optimization can resolve existing patient complaints or add more features that encourage patient population engagement. 

    Reporting is frequently inaccurate, negatively impacting operations at many levels, especially financially. EHR optimization can calibrate your reporting, coding, claims, and revenue cycle management so you can finally be confident about accuracy and efficiency.
