The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) has challenged healthcare to achieve Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records. And organizations of all shapes and sizes are mobilized to respond. In the face of numerous technology options combined with complex and evolving standards – it is increasingly clear to CIOs nationwide that expert guidance is a must.
Meaningful Use is a multi-dimensional puzzle of technology, processes and best practices working together perfectly. Early evaluation and planning are paramount. Software decisions are vital. Buy-in from clinicians is imperative. And it all needs to take place in an environment of limited capital, short timelines, and over-worked staff who lack various specialized skill sets.
ESD has teams of clinical professionals specialized in Meaningful Use nationwide, who remain fluent and up-to-date on changing guidelines and best practices. These experts help organizations achieve and maintain ARRA reimbursement through our ground-up organic approach to HIT featuring:
- Assessment – a comprehensive, pre-project audit that benchmarks your organization’s current workflow, technology, staffing, skill set and more against where you need to be for meaningful use evaluation – including a cost/benefit analysis
- Design – clinical specialists begin shaping a customized transformation strategy roadmap as part of our Pre-Activation service – comprised of actionable programs, timelines and budgets
- Implementation – Activation “Go-live” Support that puts experts behind the scenes at your facility install, configure and literally stand-by your side when you flip the switch on your new EHR
- Compliance – review and confirm preparedness, then facilitate the application and review process that will secure your Meaningful Use reimbursement incentives
Vital to our process, and a key part of the ESD difference, is the full knowledge transfer to you and your team. ESD experts have helped organizations nationwide optimize their workflows with the technology and skill sets necessary for Meaningful Use incentives.
