Read an Excerpt: 

In 2002, Allina had many disparate legacy systems for tracking and managing revenue cycle and clinical operations. Allina’s senior leadership commissioned two teams – one for clinical care and one for revenue cycle – to develop an EMR vision. Together those two visioning teams ultimately created Allina’s vision of “One patient. One record.” established through one system that could integrate clinical processes, care experience, and business processes while improving the patient’s experience.

The teams realized early on in the visioning process, that the clinical and revenue cycle experience could not remain separate. It became clear that Allina’s objective of a patientfocused experience needed a single vision and a single enabling system.
