Do you need a CMIO or Medical Director for IT? What are the key skills? Do you recruit externally or internally? How much time will they need to commit? Vision can help you answer these questions, and help you identify the right clinician and empower them for long term success.
Many IT Directors and CIOs are handed the ‘make this happen’ mandate without senior management’s clear understanding of the operational, clinical, and financial ramifications. Vision can help you develop a detailed ROI that you can use to determine the long-term implications of Meaningful Use. Vision can help you work with your leadership to put the right resources in place to ensure a successful project, and deliver a positive organizational ROI.
You’ve picked a system and intend to upgrade. Are your nurses and doctors ready? Do they trust your IT organization to help them succeed? Does your IT organization know what the clinicians need? Is everyone speaking the same language, and/or climbing the same mountain? Do your resources match the task in front of you? Vision combines a broad range of expertise to assist our clients with their Readiness Assessment – including physicians, nurses, technologists, and finance experts.
IT organizations do not always have the insight and relationships with physicians that are essential to succeed with ambitious clinical IT implementations, especially when the inevitable bumps in the road occur. For some clients, Vision’s integrated technology and clinical approach particularly focuses on physician-related issues. This includes site assessments, surveys, interviews, and strategy sessions managed by Vision physicians and designed to uncover and resolve issues and impediments to succeeding with your organizations’ physician community.
What if you implement the clinical IT system and use doesn’t occur? How do you identify and minimize that risk? How do you partner with your clinicians to ensure long-term clinical IT adoption and success? Where do you find your clinical allies? Vision can help you ensure that after you build your system, it will be fully and properly utilized and implemented. Additionally, we can help ensure that you are buying and building the best solution for your needs.
Sometimes an experienced and non-partial third party is best able to assess a situation objectively and work through the issues. Vision’s nurses, physicians, and technologists have seen these situations many times, and can help you develop a structured approach to manage and improve a problematic implementation.
