Realize the Full Benefit of the EHR
What are stakeholders saying?

“Our system just doesn’t seem to work well, and
I have heard from colleagues that there is a
better EHR out there – let’s buy that new system!”

“Documentation is full of too much extra stuff, and
I can’t find the information I need to take care of my
patients – how do we fix this?”

“We spent lots of time and dollars to put in this system
and have been working with it for 4 years but we still
haven’t seen any improvements in our coding and revenue.”

Value Realization:
Core Competencies
In order to maximize the value of an Electronic Health Record (EHR), it is critical to
develop a roadmap that addresses many core competencies, all in support of an
optimized user experience and continuous value realization.
ingenuity | intensity | integrity

Value Realization:
Competency Definitions
1. User Experience: Optimize the process and supporting systems to enhance the
overall user experience (both clinicians and patients/consumers).
2. Governance: focus on value, accountability, alignment and mitigation of risks.
3. Change Leadership: Create a culture and a framework to make changes faster,
smarter and more effective.
4. Performance Improvement: Measure the output of a particular process or
procedure, then modify it to increase the output, increase efficiency and effectiveness.
5. Training and Education: Offer learning methods that match the time constraints
and learning styles of end users to introduce new functionality and improved ways of
interacting with the system.
6. IT Services: Align business and IT objectives to ensure delivery of value to the
organization while mitigating risks and maximizing user satisfaction.

Benefits Framework
Process to Identify, Track and Manage Benefits
 Develop short-list of strategic benefit objectives with named owners
 Secure executive agreement
 Describe and communicate each benefit objective including:
–
–
–
–
–
–
Benefit statement – what will be achieved?
Selected metric(s) – how it will be tracked?
Expected outcome – what is the target?
Timeframe to realize outcome – when will the target be achieved?
Required technology change – what design/configuration will support this?
Required process change – what process/staffing will support this?
 Establish governance group to oversee benefit metric progress and
address any barriers
 Develop tool to track the status of the functional build and process
changes required to achieve expected benefit outcome
 Develop tool to track the status of benefit metrics based on expected
timeline to goal

initiative
Value realization is a multi-dimensional effort; need to consider
organizational structures, behaviors and processes
Benefits must be measured and managed to achieve value
There are no quick fixes to achieve sustained value
It is critical to understand where you are starting from across all
competency areas before you can develop a plan to improve and achieve
your vision
Strive to develop a balanced plan that facilitates quick wins and aligns to
the strategies of the organization
Change leadership is required to establish a culture where value is
expected and achieved
