Converting from Paper to Digital
Taking the right actions and precautions before and during the process of converting to digital, is a must. Your company needs the right guidance and support along with being both physically and mentally prepared. Even after you have made the switch you will need to run a simulation to make sure your clinic is ready for the real thing.
The most important part of mental preparation is getting your team together. There can be a lot of anxiety about making the transition from both doctors and staff. That is why having a cohesive team is critical. You don't have to be afraid of the unknown, especially if you have EHR experts involved who understand what you're going through. Future Health Inc. can offer you a partnership that will bring the leadership and enthusiasm your team needs to receive the best results.
Going digital effectively and sustainably requires the right equipment. Not purchasing the right tools can disrupt a seamless transition to digital management. This includes network servers, wireless devices, handheld documentation devices, desktop and laptop computers, flat-screen displays, and even the appropriate hardware to properly interface your diagnostic devices with your EHR. Your EHR experts will help you distinguish what hardware you need immediately and what you can wait to purchase in the future. There is no need to rush the implementation of technology because that could cause stress to your practice, especially without the proper guidance.
Every practice responds differently when it gives up paper and moves to digital-based management. Connecting your physical and mental preparations through simulations helps you learn what needs improvement before you perform. The digital practice is a different level of efficiency and movement that requires testing before it's used with live patients. Simulations can help identify where you need improvement and they need to be directed by a leader who knows the actual conditions you will encounter.
With a fully integrated practice there is an enhanced level of clinic performance that transforms your clinic into the Clinic of the Future.
