The EHR Journey – Workflow Analysis, Ease of Use & Best Practices

A major part of any EHR installation is workflow analysis. Every organization practices, functions, and cares for patients a little differently largely due to training, culture, and patient demographics that they serve. Knowing all of this, there is still an unrealistic expectation that healthcare technology is plug-and-play. Being trapped in this misconception can lead to end-user frustration, delays in care for patients, delayed revenue or revenue loss, and an overall mistrust of the product and the IT implementation team.

Alert Fatigue is an Alarming Problem

In theory, the more you alert a provider to potential problems, the better care the patient will receive. Pop-up alerts can simultaneously be one of the most positive and most negative features of an EHR – depending on how they’re implemented.  Too many alerts can lead to alert fatigue, which can be an alarming problem.

Clinical Simulation Bolsters EHR Readiness

Clinical simulations are a key part of a blended learning solution for go-lives and an existing part of clinical training.  The EHR can be integrated into the simulation to increase the effectiveness of existing high fidelity scenarios.  The advantage for organizations that invest in clinical simulations during go-live is that users are better prepared to use their new knowledge and skills prior to seeing patients, and the structure created in the deliverables can be used post go-live.
