The strategic information plan that needs to be implemented within my organization is having one standard Electronic Medical Record (EMR) for the whole health care organization (HCO). I currently work for an HCO that has some hospitals using Cerner some using Epic. Outpatient practices use AthenaHealth, and home health uses an entirely different EMR. This can lead to potential errors in patient care by not having the EMR in one cohesive place for all to access within their relevant scope of practice.
- Evaluate your organization’s readiness to move forward on a strategic information plan to utilize enterprise data best.
- People: For people, there would need to be a lot of training regardless of the single EMR that the HCO chooses. (e.g., Cerner vs. Epic). There needs to be one single EMR in place, so the HCO will have to employ the EMR company and have specialized training for all eligible employees. This could present possible learning barriers for staff and even have potential delays in care as there is a learning curve. The HCO is not ready to train staff until EMR experts are put on staff or contracted to help with the transition.
- Processes: The processes involve obtaining a contract with an EMR for purchase and adapting it to each clinical area, such as inpatient, outpatient, and home health. There would have to be possible hiring of IT staff with expertise in the chosen EMR. Mass training would take place.
- Technology: The HCO has the technology to make the change. The HCO has been using EMR, and there are sufficient computers; however, having a standardized EMR is key.
- Assess the key components of reporting and analytics content, specifically addressing the people, technology, and processes.
- People: While there are prime examples of key performance indicators (KPI) for an organization’s goal, people are human, so they can be missed without proper education and training. For example, a KPI that my hospital has is stroke care. I once missed a dose of aspirin (Pt was NPO) on a patient after a thrombotic stroke. That same evening I received an email from the stroke coordinator educating me on the importance of aspirin after a stroke.
- Technology: Open access to the Business Intelligence (BI) library and employee databases. Having the BI library will help implement standard procedures and provide analytical data.
- Processes: BI would help the HCO make and implement policies and procedures with evidence-based practice (EBP).
