Talk to an expert

A KLAS-leading, full-service consulting partner, Impact Advisors has guided and/or supported over 100 highly successful EHR implementations. By skillfully planning and executing projects, optimizing and integrating clinical, revenue cycle, and operational workflows, and incorporating industry best practices and lessons learned, we help clients obtain greater value from their system investments.

Challenges

Increasingly complex regulatory requirements and the evolving business demands of accountable care mean the stakes have never been higher for your organization to effectively plan, implement and operate EHR systems. Implementation risk is high, given limited leadership availability, minimal staff experience, constrained budgets, tight timelines, and heightened user expectations. Whether it’s planning assistance or comprehensive program management, an independent implementation partner is essential. Typical challenges we will help you address include:

  • Lack of IT resources to support new and legacy systems
  • Operational leadership not available to participate and drive decisions throughout program
  • Ineffective readiness planning or change management
  • Constrained budgets and tight deadlines
  • Complex technologies and inexperienced staff
  • Multiple competing initiatives to support
  • Heightened user expectations
