Tailoring Enterprise EHR Technology to Unique Clinical Workflows
April 22nd, 2019 11:00AM ET
Health systems, hospitals, and physician groups have moved to implement and adopt enterprise EHR technology with the hopes of providing a uniform experience for clinicians. However, clinical workflows vary among providers across and within specialties, running counter to a one-size-fits-all approach.
Recognizing this variation, forward-thinking clinical and technology leaders are working collaboratively to deliver an EHR experience to end-users based on the needs of different cohorts of providers. Ideally, such planning is part of the implementation design process. But given the lifespan of EHR technology — the EHR journey — EHR implementation is only the beginning of many years working to tailor their systems to the unique needs of clinicians through optimization, customization, and training and education.
Partners Continuing Care CIO John Campbell led Spaulding’s Epic implementation and telemedicine program at Spaulding Rehabilitation, a network of outpatient and inpatient facilities within Partners and a recognized leader in rehabilitative care. In this presentation, John will detail the organization’s approach to giving long-term and post-acute providers across clinical settings EHR technology that supports the needs of both providers and patients.
