After an EMR go-live is the time to enhance and optimize your system to better meet the needs of your physicians and clinical staff. This also increases adoption rates. One optimization project to consider is building tools for your specialty clinics, to take their use of the system past the generic, basic model. Clinicians may not be aware of what can be done in the new system and will need help translating their clinical needs into a clinical optimization build.
