The adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) in physician practices has increased exponentially, primarily due to the HITECH Act and Meaningful Use incentives. While adoption has increased, a significant challenge for providers continues around EHR implementation and use. A study conducted by The Fox Group, LLC in 2017 showed that 20 percent of providers considered their EHR implementation a failure. Implementing an electronic health record can be a major change for a practice, especially when converting from paper records. But the benefits gained of improving all aspects of patient care when implementing a EHR far outweigh the challenges, and include a comprehensive view of the patient, better coordination of care and safety, sharing of information, streamlined workflow, data for personalization of care and preventative care, greater efficient and cost savings, and reducing errors.
Disruption due to lack of training: Major changes to an organization’s workflow can be very frustrating, not only for the providers, but also for the staff. These changes can cause your team to feel unsatisfied at work and potentially take valuable time away from the patient needs. To overcome this obstacle, RXNT provides in-depth training for your team, including administrative and clinical staff, at no additional cost. Your team will work with a project coordinator that will provide one-on-one guidance, coordinate training, and ensure your team thoroughly understands how to use the system productively.
Software and workflow incompatibility: Often the EHR a practice works so hard to implement simply does not fit the practice’s specific needs. Each practice has a unique set of needs driven by specialty and personal preference, which requires system customization and flexibility. At RXNT, we provide practices with personalized templates and other solutions that reflect their unique needs and workflow.
RXNT is committed to assisting our clients through every step of the implementation and onboarding process, ensuring a seamless transition. If you would like to learn more about our solutions, please contact us at 1-800-943-7968 Option 3 to talk with a product expert.
