Work with an Expert Epic Advisory Partner for a Successful Epic EHR Implementation

Implementing an Epic EHR system is a significant undertaking for a healthcare organization. Often, hiring challenges can complicate or delay EHR implementation, leading to widespread frustration. Limited technical resources, a lack of planning, and a high cost of ownership can also lead to issues with budgeting and timelines. For many years, organizations have relied on costly consultants to manage this process, but with mixed results.

Fortunately, there’s a better way to plan and build skilled teams that can support EHR implementation across all stages. By partnering with Medix Technology, you’ll gain access to experts in Epic EHR software. From consulting and planning throughout your implementation, to providing flexible staffing models, we can provide the support you need to ensure the long-term success of your EHR project.

Challenges of Implementing and Supporting an Epic EHR

When implementing and supporting an EHR system, healthcare organizations face various staffing challenges, such as:

  • Resource limitations: Implementing and using an EHR system requires a team of skilled professionals. Many organizations may not have the resources for a project of this scale, often leading to a delay in implementation.
  • Lack of proper planning: While 96% of hospitals and nearly 80% of doctor’s offices have an EHR system in place, research shows that adaptation to the software has been a much slower process. It requires having a strategic, long-term plan with buy-in from stakeholders.
  • Total cost of ownership: Not only is it expensive to implement an EHR system, but it’s costly to maintain. According to a recent report, an EHR system costs healthcare organizations around $1,200 per user annually. For many organizations, the ongoing cost to staff the system can be a significant expense.
  • Talent retention: Replacing employees who leave an organization after EHR implementation can be challenging. Hiring new talent to replace them can lead to high turnover costs.
