Planning for EHR Consultants in an EHR Go Live

At CHIME 2012 I asked David Tucker, MBA, MHA, FCHIME, VP of National Sales at ESD and Kelly Mulligan, RN, BA, Chief Operating Officer at ESD about how a hospital CIO should plan for an EHR consultant. While we’d love to think that a hospital could just ask for an EHR consultant and have one there the next day, the reality is much different. Sure, you could have an EHR consultant there the next day, but if you want the best EHR consultants it takes some forethought and planning to make sure you get on their schedule. David Tucker, former hospital CIO, talks more about planning for EHR consultants in the video below.

What differentiates EHR Consulting Companies?

While at CHIME 2012, I had the chance to sit down with David Tucker, MBA, MHA, FCHIME, VP of National Sales at ESD and Kelly Mulligan, RN, BA, Chief Operating Officer at ESD. I learned a lot from them about what’s happening with hospital CIOs. Plus, it was great to get some first hand perspective on the EHR industry from a former hospital CIO (David Tucker) and an RN (Kelly Mulligan).

I pulled out a video camera to capture some of the things we talked about. I’ll be posting a number of videos with them over the next few weeks, but I’ll start with their answer to the question: What differentiates EHR consulting companies? They mention the KLAS EHR consulting form ratings and even talk about hospital CIO’s being burned by EHR consulting companies in the past.
