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.
