When an organization is about to begin an EHR implementation or upgrade, careful planning is necessary to ensure success. IT departments in hospitals and health systems are being asked to accomplish more with fewer resources available to get that work done. The training, necessary during an upgrade or EHR implementation, is a great example of needing to apply resources to the process while still maintaining day to day workload schedule. Blue Cirrus can provide the supplementary trainers for an EHR implementation<strong>!</strong>
Blue Cirrus has a clear strategy on Implementing or Upgrading electronic health record (EHR) systems. The strategy involves effective communication with senior management from start to go live. Through this communication, we are able assess the unique needs of an organization. From that needs assessment, we are able to effectively manage risk by providing expert project management and IT resources to successfully complete the EHR implementation or upgrade project. Our partners and senior leadership have done this work, and know this business, so you can be assured that the appropriate resources, at the highest quality, will be made available to your team.
The training of staff and providers to use an electronic health record (EHR) system is an opportunity for realizing the transformation in care delivery that EHR’s can bring. Proper training can be a key part of a successful implementation strategy, by helping to streamline workflow and standardize policies and procedures. Most of the training schedule occurs in the weeks leading up to a “go live”, but Blue Cirrus has found that a structured follow-up training post “go live” is helpful to optimize the benefits of the new EHR system. Training always provides an opportunity to improve and our resources bring not only the knowledge of the new EHR or upgrade, but the best practice use of the functionality. At the end of the project, your organization will be utilizing your EHR at an optimal level.
Blue Cirrus will work with your staff to ensure that the training process is well organized. Respecting the valuable time of your clinicians and staff is our priority. We strive to streamline the training process and provide expert trainers that understand your goals and are able to transfer knowledge effectively in a classroom setting or elbow to elbow training. We believe that properly training for the use of a new EHR system is an investment in the success of the new implementation. The knowledge of how to fully use the new EHR system is invaluable and we can help make your investment a success.
