If you want to participate with the Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) in your area; the acute hospitals are demanding quality care and positive outcomes from the LTPAC industry. The Managed Care Organizations (MCO) for Medicaid expect quality care for a lower cost.
For you to deliver the desired outcomes and to have control over your operating costs you need an EHR partner that delivers the proper tools and support. EHR implementation studies have all confirmed that a very important aspect for successful EHR implementation is a relationship with an EHR vendor that is capable and willing to be hands on during the training which is preceded by workflow re-engineering. It is the workflow re-engineering hands on training that facilitates the mandatory staff conversion and EHR adoption. Optimus is the only EHR for LTPAC that makes that commitment to our partners and delivers this level of training and support.
