Is your organization planning or currently performing the implementation or upgrade of a clinical application? Have you configured application controls optimally to get the most out of your investment? Regardless of size or scope, all implementations pose significant risks to the healthcare operations they impact and your organization’s overall revenue cycle effectiveness. Managing these risks well is critical to the success of initiatives ranging from the use of an electronic health record or computerized physician order entry to updating legacy lab or radiology systems. Additionally, the pressures of regulatory bodies, auditors, shareholders and other stakeholders have forced companies to spend more time, effort and money on these initiatives than ever before. Organizations are looking for ways to enhance their implementation and upgrade risk management efforts, along with ensuring operational workflow readiness prior to go-live, in order to reduce overall risk and eliminate costly retrofitting efforts later.
