Deploying a functional electronic health records (EHR) system only lays the foundation for a useful clinical health IT structure. What the hospital does afterward – the ways in which it optimizes, extends and builds
upon the EHR – determines how clinicians and patients ultimately benefit from health IT and the information ecosystem such technology enables. Among the ways hospitals are optimizing their EHRs include implementing:
• mobility solutions for clinicians;
• physician workflow improvements;
• AI-based capabilities (e.g., sepsis “early warning” systems);
• integrated secure messaging; and
• patient portals.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:
• Why EHR optimization is a preferred approach (over EHR replacement) at many hospitals
• Which high-value optimizations often represent the “shortest putts”
• How hospitals can determine their EHR optimization priorities
