Organizations are challenged to improve the use of their MEDITECH EHR as well as to prioritize and quantify returns for their information systems projects. Whether you need broad or targeted optimization, Navin, Haffty & Associates can identify, prioritize, and make improvements that will move your organization forward. Let us help you manage the list of potential opportunities:
Our industry-leading MEDITECH consultants gather existing data, interview and observe operational staff, and assess your system configuration. In these assessments, we define the current state analysis including root cause identification and provide a prioritized and detailed remediation roadmap that includes quantitative ROI estimates. Using our proprietary tools and processes, we deliver improvements to workflow based on our knowledge and experience with MEDITECH best practices.
Our approach to assessments reflects our team’s diverse, in-depth knowledge, both operationally and within each application and focuses on technical, clinical, and cultural readiness. An assessment is often the first step in a successful project and will become a guidepost to a sustainable build. Critical components of assessments include:
Many organizations realize that after several years utilizing their MEDITECH EHR they may not have taken full advantage of the system capabilities due to staff turnover, lack of user knowledge, transfer or failure to remain current with new updates and features. Optimization efforts often require minimal time and effort, and allow organizations to see benefits in patient experience, care and satisfaction, through information technology. Changes in technologies, such as new tools or standards, or an ability to automate processes, can improve efficiency. As a result, it makes business sense to step back and evaluate how your system was implemented and uncover optimization opportunities that better meet your organizational objectives. Our team of experienced consultants will make recommendations and implement changes, maximizing the value of your MEDITECH investment.
