A Roadmap for Successful EHR Implementation

Effective use of technology for the improvement of senior  care

About The Webinar

By 2050, 27 million US residents will benefit from long-term care and assisted living services from more than 15,000 skilled nursing and long-term care facilities across the nation. This number sets the challenge to a whole new level and makes the role of EHR central as it leads to cost efficiency, quality improvement, resident and patient satisfaction.

The implementation of an Electronic Health Record System is much more complicated than duplicating what is on paper and making that electronic. It is a process that must have support from Senior Leadership along with a detailed project plan to be successful. 

During this webinar EHR experts at Compass Pointe Healthcare System and VCPI share insightful detail on the various stages of EHR implementation and what considerations should be taken into account for providers preparing to successfully implement their own EHR.
