EHR MIGRATION JOURNAL
Navigating the EHR
A Four Part Series
We’ve dedicated a focused series of information bulletins designed to support provider organizations that are making the decision to move to a new EHR/PM platform or contemplating such a move.
Journal 1EHR Migration Planning, Strategies & Assistance
It’s common knowledge that migrating to a new EHR platform is one of the most complex and costly IT projects that a healthcare organization can embark upon. It involves broad and in-depth operational, financial and technology planning, support from experienced third-party experts, and a little good old-fashioned luck – to execute with some level of success.
Journal 2Initial Planning, Vendor Evaluation and Selection
As you begin planning for selecting a new EHR platform there are several critical decisions to consider along with operational and budgetary planning for this complex project. Since healthcare delivery is in a state of constant evolution, many organizations begin this project by taking a step back to objectively assess their current EHR platform and vendor partner to establish an updated set of criteria that are essential to running an efficient and competitive healthcare delivery organization.
Journal 3Data Planning, Implementation, and Go-Live
Once you’ve chosen your preferred new EHR platform, there are several key decisions to consider as you begin planning your data migration strategy, and implementation & Go-Live processes. This journal will provide you with some guidance and resources to assist you with this complex, costly, and often stress-inducing journey.
