Strategic Planning for a High-Performance Practice



Healthcare is undergoing transformative changes at an unprecedented speed. In order to cope with these rapid changes, strategic planning has become a critical element to the success of any high-performance medical practice, especially when it comes to information technology (IT).  Whether you are in the midst of implementing an enterprise-wide electronic health record (EHR) systems, working toward compliance with new governmental mandates like MACRA and the Advanced Care Information (ACI) program, establishing insurance exchanges, or even deploying a medical home, medical practice executives are confronted with a deluge of high-priority initiatives.

A successful end-to-end IT strategy must align with the business of your practice and the delivery of the best patient care possible. It is imperative to view your health IT strategy plan from an IT management perspective. Your plan should provide clarity on how it can be operationalized to manage all of your clinical and business data within the medical practice.

These are not easy issues for most medical practices to undertake. A properly designed, high performing and well-managed healthcare IT strategic plan is one of the most important assets for any healthcare organization today. The failures associated with poorly designed or outdated technology systems can put patients, and your practice, at enormous risk.

Creating the right IT strategy is challenging for even the largest and most sophisticated practices, and when you include the complexity of patient care delivery, governmental compliance mandates, and the complex business issues associated with any medical practice, it could be very expensive to get your IT strategy wrong.

That is why you should consider getting outside help from an advisory team who are experts in the strategic planning and implementation of healthcare information systems. They will have confronted these challenges before and can help your practice avoid costly missteps.

An outside advisory team, utilizing their years of experience, will have developed a proven methodology for optimizing healthcare technology with a human touch, and they will enable your practice to focus on patient care, while they focus on creating the best IT plan for your practice. IT experts can work with your team to identify your specific stress points, gaps, and risks, and provide workable solutions to ensure a better-integrated system that fits into the unique workflow of your practice.

You also gain the insight and expertise of seasoned healthcare IT experts who work in healthcare IT every day. They can provide clarity in creating your IT strategy, improve your operational performance, and bring immediate security to your IT ecosystem while offering stability and predictability in strategic planning, budgeting, implementation, and support.
