If your organization is thinking about buying a new Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform and you’re part of the EHR evaluation committee, you need to arm yourself with the right information to help you on that journey.
Just like behavioral healthcare organizations, no two EHRs are alike. That’s why it’s important that you select a technology solution that aligns with the unique mission and strategic vision of your agency.
In this webinar, Robert Patton, Senior Director of EHR Operations at Qualifacts, hosts an honest discussion about the EHR buying process.
After watching this webinar recording, attendees will better understand:
- How the healthcare IT selection process can be simplified
- Why you need a diversified EHR selection committee to set your organization up for success
- The (avoidable) reasons – including confusion about the buying process – why EHR implementations fail
