Benefits of Using an EMR/EHR Consultant – Clinical Process Mapping

Part three of our five part series on the benefits of an EMR or EHR consultant is clinical process mapping.

Clinical Process Mapping

One of the hardest things for a doctor new to EMR to do is see how their current clinical processes will work electronically in an EMR. To alleviate this fear, EMR consultants can first map out a doctor’s clinical processes. They can then use their experience with other EMR implementations and show how current clinical processes will be done using an EMR. This will save doctors a lot of time mapping out these processes. It also provides a clear understanding of what a doctor’s clinic will look like electronically. However, the most important part of this process is that it provides a way to find problems that may occur with an EMR before you’ve actually implemented.
