When is an EHR implementation about more than just technology? Traditionally, initial and replacement EHR implementation initiatives are approached as IT projects with sponsorship and leadership provided by technology-focused executives and resources. While technology will always be a significant focus in this type of project, more impactful organization-wide improvements may be realized when an EHR implementation is viewed as a catalyst for transformational changes. ECG recently partnered with Adventist Health System (AHS), headquartered in Altamonte Springs, Florida, and athenahealth to assist with implementation of athenahealth’s ambulatory platform where the overarching goal was to simplify, standardize, and optimize the entire physician enterprise.

With vision, communication, implementation, and momentum, an EHR initiative can become a global enterprise transformation.
