Optimization of an Electronic Health Record system is the continual process of leveraging advanced application functionality to enhance workflows and improve resource productivity. During the implementation process, many healthcare organizations make trade-offs between what system build will be completed as part of the initial go-live and what will be implemented after the go-live as part of an optimization effort. Optimization ensures that the fullest potential of the software chosen is achieved by your organization.
Optimization is the key for maximizing the return on your EHR investment. EHR ROI includes both financial and quality measures. From a financial perspective, optimization maximizes the return on your EHR investment, by improving overall physician and resource productivity, and ensuring the timely and appropriate capture of charge information. From a quality perspective, optimization ensures routine measurement and management of clinical quality measures and outcomes.
