Epic Community Connect is a cost-effective program that allows independent health care practices, hospitals, and post-acute facilities to connect to a larger hospital system to access the Epic EMR network.
The program offers numerous advantages to health care organizations, including simplified access to an EMR network, increased patient referrals, increased community engagement, improved relationships with other providers in the community, and improved access to community data, as well as additional features such as patient education modules. Community hospitals and independent providers receive access to a fully functioning EMR while maintaining their own scheduling and financial information.
A successful Community Connect implementation can allow health care organizations to increase revenue and improve patient care while avoiding the exorbitant costs and headaches that typically accompany EMR implementation.
Titan Health Systems can help plan, launch, support, and optimize your Community Connect strategy while circumventing common mistakes that can cause delays and drive up costs.
Proven Implementation Methodology
Our proven methodology provides clients with a comprehensive and flexible implementation process that can be easily adapted to fit the needs of any organization. While many implementation partners focus primarily on deployment, we provide each client with a comprehensive strategic plan to identify and address their unique program requirements.
A clear strategy is critical to the success of any Community Connect implementation. The location and size of your health care organization, as well as the specific services you provide to the community, will all influence the exact parameters of your Community Connect program. During the strategy phase, we will gather your requirements; define your goals and guiding principles; examine your business model and legal contract; identify current workflows; and determine how you will define success with your program. This stage also provides the opportunity to prepare your staff for the transition ahead and promote the shift in organizational mindset necessary for long-term program success.
Regardless of the size of your Community Connect network, careful planning of your marketing materials, policies, and procedures will help ensure a successful rollout and smooth onboarding of new partners.
Once a strategic plan is in place, we’ll support your organization through the deployment process, providing ongoing testing and training to help successfully onboard your partners. We offer an extensive library of tools and templates that can be customized to your program to help streamline the entire deployment process.
Continuous analysis and optimization are critical to the long-term success of any program. Following successful program deployment, Titan Health Systems can offer partial or full support to help you optimize your Community Connect programs. Our experts will regularly identify areas of improvement, provide recommendations for program enhancement, and respond to the needs of your partners as they adjust to the system.
