Finding An Electronic Health Record System For Your Future: The OPEN MINDS Executive Seminar On Best Practices In EHR Selection, Contracting & Optimization

Executive Seminar Sponsored By Qualifacts + Credible

Over the past twenty years the adoption of electronic health record systems (EHRs) has changed how health services are managed and delivered. But as the health care system has continued to evolve with more value-based reimbursement, the push towards integrated care coordination, and the rise in consumerism, the technology infrastructure needed by provider organizations has changed—including EHRs. For most executives, the EHR is a major investment and choosing the right system (or keeping the wrong system) can make or break any organization.

This seminar is for any executive who is considering a new EHR system—whether it is your organization’s first EHR, or the upgrade of a system that isn’t delivering the functionality needed for sustainability. This essential seminar will guide you through a step-by-step process for selecting an EHR that fits all your organization’s needs. The seminar will cover:

  • A best practice model for assessing the tech functionality your organization needs for future success.
  • Steps for vetting vendors and their products and services.
  • Budgeting for EHR software and implementation.
  • Ensuring best value and performance in contract negotiating.

October 19, 2021 | 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Eastern

We’re bombarded with stories about electronic health records (EHR) evolving to become more flexible and use more services like blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and artificial intelligence, but what do your peers report firsthand? We recently concluded the sixth annual OPEN MINDS National Behavioral Health EHR Survey and found that 53% of provider organizations report their EHR does not have all the functionalities they need. Only 19% report their clinical, scheduling, billing, and reporting and analytics functionalities as meeting their needs. These Core 4 functionalities are crucial to service delivery and organizational sustainability.

Join OPEN MINDS Senior Associate, Joe Naughton-Travers, for a free webinar on October 19 at 1:00pm ET to hear the results of the 2021 OPEN MINDS National Behavioral Health EHR Survey and what your organization can do to plan for the next advances in health care technology and service delivery. Mr. Travers will also discuss the growing concern among providers and what functionalities to be looking at for future service delivery and timely reimbursements.
