EHR Implementation

Apprio implements commercial and open source EHRs for organizations in care settings, including disaster environments.

To assist clients, we follow a rigorous planning and technical evaluation before beginning the implementation in order to ensure success. Our implementations follow the six-prong recommendations from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). Apprio can help you:

  • Assess your practice readiness
  • Plan your approach
  • Select or upgrade to a certified EHR
  • Conduct training and implement an EHR solution
  • Achieve Meaningful Use
  • Continue quality improvement

Integration

Electronic health records need to be seamlessly integrated and interoperable with various systems. This is accomplished through uniform technical standards and specifications endorsed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology’s (ONC) Office of Science and Technology.

Integration of health IT information is a key component to achieve the goals of the HITECH Act. Apprio assists clients with selecting and installing EHR applications as well as ensuring the applications are seamlessly integrated into their overall technology infrastructure.

To that end Apprio participates in current interoperability initiatives that foster better integration with internal and external health IT systems. These initiatives aim to standardize:

  • Meaning
  • Structure
  • Transport
  • Security
  • Services

EHR Training

Training is the critical piece to every new endeavor. Rolling out electronic health records is no exception.

Apprio is a leader in training public sector organizations to navigate the rapidly changing healthcare landscape in the areas of EHRs, health surveillance and dashboards, and health information exchange (HIE).

We can help you to train your employees to use your EHR systems. Training will provide your permanent and temporary staff with the information they need to effectively use the system, capture all relevant patient information care and effectively use information in the system to aid in patient care. We can provide all necessary security and privacy training.
