Let’s Get Started
Comprehensive Project Management Requirements
Implementation of a new EHR system comes with numerous moving parts, technically speaking. Plus, this requires careful coordination of IT generalists and specialists in ways that meet deadlines and keep the project within scope and budget. Besides guiding people, professional project managers must also oversee multiple intricate processes to keep EHR implementations optimally on track, having a clear understanding of objectives and specific deliverables.
Fortunately, EMR consultants with project management expertise in our network excel in this crucial specialty. They will collaborate with key contacts in your healthcare organization to ensure clarity of purpose and expectations, obtain executive buy-in, and clearly communicate information to all relevant parties. Our project managers can help your healthcare organization to make sure that your objectives align with your overall mission and vision, strategic plan, operational goals, and more.
Professionals in our network will then take the objectives and transform them into actionable tasks with deadlines that dovetail with the overall timeline. Throughout the project, they will collect necessary inputs and communicate progress to all stakeholders in targeted ways based on their roles. This can range from high-level updates to executives to more granular communications to IT professionals.
When the overall project plan needs to be modified, our project managers are skilled at evaluating options and associated risks, determining costs and how they fit within the budget, handling change and risk management activities and more. After receiving approvals for recommended changes, they will be effectively communicated.
As the EHR application is implemented, integrated, and optimized, the EMR consultants overseeing your project management can ensure that appropriate process documentation occurs. This way, your healthcare facilities will have detailed documentation about customizations made, which will be crucial when your teams are trained in usage.
As part of overall management, EMR consultants from our network can oversee the completion of data cleaning, migrating, and archiving; ensure successful validations and testing before the go-live day; verify workarounds; and more. Project managers can also supervise go-live activities and govern post-go-live reviews.
A Word About Scope Creep
Project managers juggle multiple responsibilities, and one of the most important is to effectively manage scope creep. EHR implementations can be quite complex with multiple routes to consider for workflow customizations.
Because of this, it’s far too easy for EHR implementation teams to veer off the streamlined pathway laid out for the project. When this happens, it’s more likely that costs will rise (delaying your return on investment in this technology) and deadlines will not be met, which triggers its own costs.
Experienced project managers will thoughtfully consider each time that an implementation plan may need to be adjusted, weighing pros and cons, costs and timelines. Then, after gathering intelligence and gleaning insights, the optimal decision can be made.
Benefits of Quality EHR Project Management
Professionals at your healthcare organization already maintain busy schedules, including:
- Doctors, specialists, and nurses focusing on quality patient care
- Risk management professionals keeping your facilities in compliance
- Controllers, insurance specialists, and more managing revenue
- Your IT team handling a wide range of specialized technical functions
Harnessing the expertise of a project manager with technical, financial, and human resource skills eases your workload. This professional can oversee the timelines and budget of the EHR implementation and serve as a central resource for your IT team as they customize your new technology to seamlessly meet the needs of the groups mentioned above (and more).
Project managers from our network, such as our Epic consultants, can supervise a combination of in-house IT professionals who are assigned to the implementation along with EMR consultants selected to fill in staffing gaps.
