Yesterday we shared 6 EHR optimization tips with you. Today, we’re going to look at the ecosystem of technology that interacts with the EHR and makes the EHR experience better (or worse if done wrong). It’s easy to talk about optimizing the EHR as just configuring the EHR setting and workflows, but EHR software these days now integrates with often hundreds of other systems. If we’re going to optimize the EHR experience, we’re going to have to integrate the right add-on products and make sure those integrations are done the right way.
Here are just a few examples members of the Healthcare IT Today community, including R1's Wayne Hass, shared with us when it comes to the downstream impacts of EHR optimization and the need to properly integrate with other solutions.
