Analytics-Based EHRs Implementation: Improved Outcomes

11:30am - 12:30pm Thursday, February 14
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


EHRS implementations are notoriously risky. Failure rates over the last two decades have been between 30-80%. Failures have been attributed to poor workflows, training, preparation and go-lives. CDCR Mental Health leveraged data and analytics to increase the chance of success in all of the above areas. They achieved 100% successful implementation at all 35 institutions. Also, they were ranked 24 out of 368 organizations in a major vendor's ranking of adoption. Also, there are several additional measures that support the use of data to decrease risk and increase success.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Demonstrate knowledge of how data will improve success of EHRS implementation
  • Demonstrate an understanding of how quality management tools can improve training results for EHRS implementations
  • Describe the metrics used to support a data-based model of implementation over a vendor-based cookie-cutter model
