8 Steps to a Successful EHR Conversion
Conversions are one of the critical junctures in the life of an EHR and a practice. It represents the sunset of one system and the sunrise of another. An EHR conversion is challenging, requiring a unique mix of savvy technical deployment with carefully considered and collaborative planning. However, while conversions can be challenging, they are not new. There is a defined process that will help ensure your probability of success. While we do not cover all the possible myriad of details in this white paper, the following 8 steps will give you a good start.
Building Master Data Management Solutions for ACO’s
While healthcare has always been dependent on data, the transition to value-based reimbursement dramatically raises the stakes. Specifically, it requires a degree of integration between data sources that previously was not required under a fee-forservices regime. An MDM solution allows a healthcare enterprise to standardize and pool critical data into a single database, providing a common point of reference for ACO reporting and management. This white paper discusses 7 questions to consider in preparing for and implementing an MDM for ACOs.
Shared Savings Success: A Model for Teamwork
Advocate Physician Partners (APP) is a leading Accountable Care Organization that unites over five thousand physicians across the Chicago Metropolitan Area and Central Illinois. They are an integral component of Advocate Health Care, one of the largest providers in the Midwest. While APP clearly excels with these programs, they are still guided by one simple principle; providing the highest quality care while striving to improve patient safety and outcomes. Their ACO first became involved with Medicare’s Shared Savings Program (MSSP) in 2012 and has been consistently reporting substantial improvements in outcomes and financial savings each year.
Redefining What “Partnership” Means
Most EHR vendors excel at providing basic functionality and government compliance but often look to partners to help develop innovative features. Byte Sized Solutions provides an effective model for how partnerships can work in the complex world of Electronic Health Records (EHR). This discussion with EHR Industry Expert Stanley Cranes demonstrates how Byte Sized Solutions take the notion of “partnership” to the next level to provide the highest value possible in a working relationship.
Increasing Analytical Capabilities for Utilization Management
To remain at the leading edge of healthcare, Northwestern Medicine is exploring new ways to collaborate across the health system enterprise to increase efficiency and elevate the quality of care. Northwestern Medicine Physician Partners (NMPP) is a population health management program built on the foundation of a shared physician-hospital platform and designed to meet the future demands of healthcare through collaboration and leadership.
Byte Sized Solutions and Occam bring appointment scheduling into the hands of patients
Scheduling health care appointments can be time-consuming for both patient and practice. As consumers become more accustomed to immediate access to information and customer service, waiting on a phone call can seem less than satisfactory. Advocate Dreyer wanted to establish their own online scheduling system to give patients the ability to book time directly with their providers, at their convenience, 24-7.
