Getting EHR installed successfully is just half job done. Before bringing the EHR in workflow, one must examine the EHR on the significant parameters, including – accessibility, interoperability, security, usability and time.
Accessibility: Installed EHR must be easy to access. To check the same, one can explore the EHR, and can find out whether it is easy to perform crucial actions on it or the structure is complicated. In an ideal EHR, the flow remains standardized and most usable tabs remain on the dashboard section. However, some EHR also have the customization option available, but then even, one must find out up to which level it can be customized.
Interoperability: Before testing the EHR on this node, one must decide the desired level of interoperability; foundational, structural or semantic. Based on the choice, one can examine the EHR on interoperability factor. However, irrespective of the level of Interoperability, it must be secure and quick.
Usability: To check EHR on usability factor, one must find out the processes which were being handled manually. Then, you need to match whether all such processes can be accomplished through EHR or not. In addition, you also need to make sure all such processes are easy to handle on EHR in comparison with the manual handling.
Security: EHR must be tested on this factor keenly and thoroughly. Here, you are not only required to test the security of the confidential and crucial data, but one must also ensure that in case of system damage; EHR should not be shuttered or misbehave.
Time: To verify EHR on time factor, you need to calculate the time that installed EHR is taking in performing any given task and the final time must be matched with manual handling of all such processes. If EHR is making big difference, then it is ok for your facility.
If your EHR successfully clears all the exams then, you can start working with it, otherwise you need to replace the same. Factually, most of the physicians do not check the EHR once installed which results in poor experience in future. Hence, one must hold post installation EHR check to verify its capabilities. Additionally, your EHR must be based on the technically smart, so that it can cope up with the possible change in the technology in the near future.
