Before investing in any IT system, health care leaders should consider what capabilities are needed and what vendor will best support those needs. But this is only the start. There are many other factors to consider after purchase, such as:
- How to properly manage the system
- How best to train clinicians and staff to use it
- How it should integrate into workflows and routines
- How it will comply with various external regulations and policies
With so many plans to coordinate, you need an implementation strategy to ensure you’re capturing the full benefit of your new technology investment.
How we help
The experts at Clinovations, a division of Advisory Board Consulting, work with providers and managers from the beginning stages of technology consideration to find the right vendor for the organization and its unique needs, and then develop an implementation plan and schedule aimed at improving patient outcomes while mitigating risks. In this plan, our consultants provide actionable steps for implementation and outline governance, integration, training, workflows, and policies for the technology—and as necessary, can help create system content and support meaningful use initiatives.
