Optimization Services

  • Adoption and Optimization Services. Effective adoption of EHR applications is an ongoing and dynamic process. Allscripts provides adoption and optimization services designed to engage clinicians and end-users and drive ownership throughout the organization. Our adoption and clinical application assessment services provide reporting tools to evaluate the current level of adoption. These assessment services also provide clinical rounding, observations and interviews to establish a strategic adoption program focused on impactful changes in workflow and configuration.
    Over time, the needs of an organization change or the current workflows no longer align with the system configuration. This can lead to work-arounds and inefficiencies that often cause dissatisfaction. Our optimization services provide current-state assessments and recommend configurations or workflows that leverage existing functionality to improve the recognized value of your Allscripts applications. Optimization services are provided to address specific service line/departmental needs (e.g., emergency department, pharmacy) or organization pain points (e.g., clinical documentation).
