Is your organization planning or currently performing the implementation or upgrade of a clinical application? Regardless of size or scope, all implementations pose significant risks to the healthcare operations they impact. Effectively managing these risks is critical to the success of initiatives ranging from using an electronic medical record (EMR) or computerized physician order entry to updating legacy lab or radiology systems. Additionally, the pressures of regulatory bodies, auditors, and other stakeholders have forced companies to spend more time, effort and money on these initiatives than ever before.
As healthcare becomes more connected and the size and complexity of implementation initiatives continue to increase, organizations are looking for ways to enhance their implementation and upgrade risk management efforts, along with ensuring operational workflow readiness prior to go-live. The goal is to reduce overall risk and eliminate costly retrofitting efforts later.
Whether your EMR is in place for over a decade, for example, or you are just now beginning to make the transition from paper to digital, partnering with Protiviti can help you get the most out of your investment.
