How ASCs can maximize their return on EHR deployment — 3 key strategies

EHR deployment can deliver a significant return on investment for ASCs if they develop a strategic implementation process, HSTpathways CFO Tom Scott wrote in an article on Health Data Management

Here are the three keys to maximizing ROI:

1. Identify and engage champions. One or more technology champions who understand the advantages of EHR adoption are crucial. These physicians, nurses and office staff should encourage and help others to use the software. To see the greatest ROI, all members of the organization must use the new system.

2. Evaluate existing workflow processes. Pinpoint any inefficiencies in current workflow processes and determine where improvements should be made before deploying an EHR. Choose an EHR specifically designed for the ASC space to ensure smooth workflow alignment.

3. Consider a natively integrated EHR solution. Most ASCs use practice management solutions for scheduling, inventory management, billing and more. Centers that use a natively integrated EHR solution can combine this data with clinical information to produce actionable insights.
