EHR & The Physicians Trust Readiness Center
According to Gartner’s EHR Key Initiate Overview “No other healthcare project will likely be as complex, face more reluctant or even hostile challenges, or have greater potential to transform the organization and its practice of healthcare deliver.”
Samsung understands the challenges healthcare providers face in adopting Electronic Health Records (EHR) and the potential opportunities it presents. With this in mind, Samsung has partnered with Physicians Trust to present the Physicians Trust Readiness Center within the Samsung booth.
Built to represent the ideal healthcare technology learning center, the facility fosters education and adoption of electronic health records, health information exchange and patient applications in the ambulatory care environment. At the Readiness Center physicians, medical staff and administrators can experience a real-life training scenario designed to optimize the learning curve and adoption.
While visiting the Samsung booth, attendees can also preview the PT Practice Assessment and receive feedback on strategies for improving your practice. The PT Practice Assessment is a proprietary application that generates a comprehensive evaluation of a practice, ensuring providers and staff workflows are aligned with the proper technology. In addition, current workflows are measured and tracked against proposed changes that are shared with the practice and implementation team, providing a custom blueprint that is unique to the practice.
