IT Strategic Planning during COVID-19
Even before COVID, ProviNET was seeing a good deal of providers striving to put together a focused plan around technology, one that would fit around their overall strategic plan for the organization. Prior to 2020, there was a big push in the industry to revolutionize how providers saw technology, and ProviNET was fortunate to be the first-choice partner for a good deal of them with our IT Strategic Planning projects. However, as the team began one of these projects with a multi-site community just outside of Boston, we found ourselves in a unique spot as the country began to go on lockdown.
EHR Implementation during COVID-19
Going through a transition from one EHR to another is always a huge task for a provider, even when there isn’t a pandemic to navigate around. However, in the summer of 2020, one CCRC in South Carolina still saw the value in moving to a more modern EHR solution to provide better care to their patients and a better experience for their staff. The one challenge though was ensuring that the clinicians felt comfortable and fully educated in how to use the new EHR as it became their new daily workflow.
