Let’s Get Started
Creating Your Optimization Team
After analyzing the specialties of your in-house IT team members and determining how much time they would have to dedicate to the Epic optimization without harming other initiatives, it’s not unusual to discover skills gaps and time constraints. Augmenting your staff with professionals from our network will allow your healthcare facilities to get the most out of your IT investment—and HealthTECH goes above and beyond merely supplying staff. We’ll also help you to analyze your staffing needs to create a plan and we can fill in gaps with consultants, contractor-to-hire professionals, and permanent candidates for even the most urgent timelines.
Benefits of Epic Optimization
With a well-honed, fully-optimized Epic EHR application, your physicians, nurses, insurance specialists, and other staff can spend less time on paperwork and other routine tasks and focus more on providing quality patient care. This enhanced productivity benefits medical professionals and patients alike and will provide the motivation for even greater adoption of the application. As just two examples, your healthcare facilities can benefit from streamlined medical specialty workflows as well as more straightforward patient charting—each of which provides benefits to your healthcare facilities and the patients you serve.
The optimization process is the ideal time to review data and determine what to archive and what to clean and migrate. As part of that process, you can refine analytics and reporting to target what information is needed in what format. Plus, in an industry where compliance demands are constantly evolving, your healthcare facilities can stay ahead of these changes.
Right-Pacing Your Project
When EHR systems are implemented too quickly, crucial workflows may be given short shrift with some processes overlooked altogether. This can lead to a clunky implementation, one that requires doctors and other end users of the Epic application to spend more time than what’s optimal on routine tasks. This lessens the amount of time that can be spent on patient care (which means wasted money) and leads to user frustration.
Other times, implementations drag and get caught up in preventable pitfalls and you experience delays. This lowers the efficiency of the project, making it more costly and extends the amount of time that you need to reach the desired return on investment.
Professionals in the HealthTECH network, though, right-pace your project for the most efficient, cost effective implementation. They proactively pinpoint problems and develop workarounds and otherwise look ahead to keep the project on time and within budget.

Epic Optimization FAQs
After picking Epic as your EHR system of choice, this robust application can be configured and customized in multiple ways during the implementation. Epic EHR optimization refers to the process of implementing the software in the most optimal way, meaning the most effective, cost efficient route—one that dovetails with your healthcare facility’s workflows. This process requires high level strategic planning, nuanced decision making, and close attention to detail.
The optimization process focuses on the end user as Epic experts configure and customize the application for the most streamlined and effective user experiences possible. The more that the optimization process improves ease of use, the less time (and, therefore, money) is wasted and less frustration occurs. Navigational pathways can be uniquely optimized for each type of end user from physicians to nurses, and from pharmacy professionals to insurance specialists—and for each of the medical specialties, such as oncology, gastroenterology, dermatology, and more.
HealthTECH’s professional network contains premier trainers and technical writers to streamline the process for the ultimate in role-specific training and reference materials. It also makes sense to have post-upgrade support available for your staff as they continue to gain proficiency in the newly optimized application and confidence in their abilities to use it most effectively.
