EMR Integration: Mitigating Supply Chain Financial Risk


Considering the significant investment health care organizations devote to an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) implementation, a conversation around the potential financial and operational risks of supply chain integration is imperative for the sustainability of such an integrated solution. An organization frequently focuses on materials management and EMR systems independently, with siloed reporting relationships promoting a lack of coordination between clinical departments, finance, revenue cycle, IT, materials management and supply chain stakeholders. When these worlds collide through an EMR implementation, there is often increased miscellaneous supply usage, revenue and productivity loss and stakeholder frustration.

The financial impact is significant, and while an organization that effectively integrates can see stable or improved financial performance, failure to do so can be a significant driver of an EMR implementation falling short of financial expectations.

EMR Integration: Mitigating Supply Chain Financial Risk dives into the causes for the risks a health care organization can face with integrating materials management with an EMR, as well as:

  • How to align systems when planning for EMR and case studies demonstrating success
  • Common integration challenges while providing recommendations on how to realize financial benefits
  • Questions that assess the complexity between materials management and EMR integration
  • Key stake holder considerations for alignment and sustainability
