<Love Your EHR./>

Do you have the right EHR? Is your EHR supporting your clinical workflow? EHRs are vital in behavioral healthcare, but getting it right is a tall task. Our process ensures you have the system your staff and consumers deserve.

Selection

There isn’t one, right system that fits every behavioral health organization. Afia has an industry-leading selection process that ensures you find the right vendor to support all of your organizational goals and workflow needs.  Our vendor independence also means that our only objective is to find you the right system, without any potential conflicts of interest along the way.

Implementation

Implementing an EHR is one of the most costly, challenging projects a healthcare organization will ever undertake.  Many times the complexity of these projects lead to a focus on getting the project done, instead of getting it done right.

Afia’s EHR Consulting utilizes a proven structure for managing implementations. Afia consultants have extensive expertise in EHR vendor systems, workflow improvement, form consolidation, and end user adoption. Our experts can provide consulting support in the following areas:

  • System Architecture and Project Management
  • Clinical and Financial Best Practice Implementation
  • Data Analytics/Reporting
  • Data Conversion

Optimization

Within the ever-changing behavioral health and human services landscape there is a new challenge around every bend. Most organizations don’t have the time or resources to ensure their EHR is keeping up. Afia developed the EHR Refresh so that our solution and process improvement experts can ensure that your EHR is setup to properly support your organizational goals and service delivery initiatives.

Leveraging insights from your data, our experts can help identify opportunities for improvement in your base system configuration, billing setup, revenue cycle process, and clinical performance. Afia’s approach is a 5-phase process:

  1. Define the executive vision and goals
  2. Deliver optimization and insights through data/analysis
  3. Validate findings and opportunities
