DISC’s medical records indexing helped throughout three major IT transitions, including switching EHRs and moving from decentralized to centralized fax and document scanning.

How to Switch to Epic EHR with Minimal Disruption to Filing and Indexing Medical Records

Changing EHRs without understanding the way they approach indexing will drastically hamper your fax and scan workflow. Ignoring this workflow leads to a backlog of patient health records, which ultimately affects your providers’ ability to give quality patient care.

Epic in particular has some key differences in how it handles document filing and indexing that is often overlooked. Organizations who switch to Epic are the most prone to experiencing a backlog.

You can avoid this problem with strategic planning. That way, your go-live date can happen without slowing down your health information management team or affecting provider access to patient health information.

In this guide you will learn:

  • Five key differences in how Epic EHR handles incoming patient documents versus other major EHR vendors
  • How those differences will hamper your filing and indexing speed if they are not addressed before your go-live date
  • Step-by-step solutions to prepare your HIM team for a seamless transition
  • Tools and services to improve filing and indexing speed and accuracy
  • Examples of large organizations who successfully switched to Epic EHR while improving their indexing workflows
