Providing insight into your
data management, workflow,
and efficiency challenges
Leverage Our Knowledge and Insight
By choosing to work with Keena, your practice will align with industry leading healthcare consultants to evaluate your demanding technology and workflow needs while also providing insight and consideration of industry trends and regulatory requirements. As your needs change, an appropriate consultant will be assigned to the project at hand ensuring that you always receive the best resource to manage your situation. Our clients all come to embrace each assigned consultant as essential members of their team knowing that they are a trusted expert supported by a diverse team of skilled Keena advisors and workflow enabling tools. With Keena you’re not just hiring a temporary resource but healthcare IT experts and technology facilitators who are always just an email, phone call or text message away.
Keena consulting clients have a “direct-line” to an assigned clinical data expert to help strategic IT projects such as: daily EHR/PM troubleshooting, upgrade support, large project support, specialty project lead, configuration advice, peer networking, workflow automation and general industry trends.
No matter the software application or required method of delivery, whether its end-user or IT analyst training, we have the skilled resources to help with these projects. Our experts can assist in training needs for Large Project Rollouts, EHR/PM End-user Training, and IT Analyst Admin Training. We also specialize in advanced training areas including SQL, Interface Builds, or Software-Specific training tasks such as Allscripts TouchWorks Advance Structure Note, etc.
Most workflow challenges for end-user staff and management are the result of complex EHR/PM and ancillary systems being rapidly deployed. These complex deployments can often lead to misconfigured software and cumbersome workflows that negatively impact productivity. Our team evaluates and recommends system optimization reviews on a regular basis. Through these systemic workflow analyses our team will provide a detailed report of adjustments that lead to an organization working smarter, not harder.
Expert Project Management
Regulatory and organizational changes often result in new and unexpected projects. Timely implementation of these projects often requires the need for an expert resource to help backfill staff daily tasks or to lead the project. Our project management team will evaluate your needs and bring in experienced project managers or task-oriented consultants to make sure your plans stay on course with a successful conclusion. Examples include: Major System Upgrades, Software Conversions, and New Locations or Specialty Rollouts.
Custom Reporting Needs
Data is only as powerful as the analytic algorithms that drive operational reporting. Although most systems come with a standard set of reports that cover your basic data management needs, it is nearly impossible to achieve peak organizational efficiency without custom reporting. Our team of database experts will take your data reporting requests and turn them into accurate and effective operational tools. A sample of our capabilities include: staff productivity reports, quality and regulatory performance analysis, billing tracking and financial performance, or occasional one-off reports to support a clinical trial or security/legal audit.
Workflow Automation/Data Cleanup
Repetitive manual workflows often result in inefficiency, job dissatisfaction and wasted budget dollars. Any workflow that is repetitive and data-driven with numerous manual steps or excessive “clicks” should be evaluated for automation. If rules and login models can be written down, then an effective electronic process can be created to manage the task more efficiently. Examples include: CPTII Code Billing, Patient Problem/Diagnosis clean-up, Patient Portal Flagging and more.
We were at a point in time where our IT staff shortfall and tight local labor market had the potential to disrupt our ability to manage mission critical daily operations. After bringing in skilled and experienced Keena IT consultants to support our department, we not only were able to effectively maintain essential IT systems but also implement new quality and efficiency enabling applications and programs.
The result was an increase in staff satisfaction and overall increase in our clinical operations and improvement in care delivery.”
