From its inception, BlueNovo has had an overarching organizational mission to deliver complex, mission critical projects within healthcare organizations marked by a methodology embedded with a focus on simplicity, agility and innovation. Founded by Senior Technology Executives with an extensive record of deploying intricate systems within complex organizational environments, its leaders are intimately aware of the potential downside a healthcare organization faces when it embarks on an enormous transition such as an EHR (Electronic Health Record) Implementation.

 

On a national level, the implementation of EHRs and of meaningful use attestation has not lead to significant improvements in the quality of patient care provided because the methodologies used to deploy these systems were/ are inadequate. Many healthcare organizations have actually experienced horrific outcomes as mortality rates have actually increased post-deployment. In response to this, BlueNovo developed a proprietary, comprehensive implementation methodology covering all aspects of the implementation, which ensures the EHR deployment is completed on time, on budget and with the desired improvement in the quality of patient care. BlueNovo’s methodology ensures a healthcare entity will fully reap the benefits of transitioning to an EHR.

 

With the advent of ARRA HITECH, healthcare providers have widely adopted EHR systems. Unfortunately, very few providers were actually, thoroughly aware of the enormity of the transition on which they were embarking. It is extremely difficult to grasp the magnitude of the transition of an EHR system implementation without prior experience. As such, many providers were unaware of the need for outside support in order to properly manage the transition and, as a result, many healthcare entities have not seen the anticipated improvements in patient care they had envisioned prior to deploying the EHR system. In fact, many providers are languishing under the ill-effects of a well-designed but poorly implemented EHR system.

 

In response, BlueNovo also developed an optimization methodology. The optimization methodology targets organizations that have deployed an EHR system, but have not yet acquired the anticipated benefits. BlueNovo re-evaluates the approach to the initial implementation and takes corrective action to help the organization reach the original intended improvements desired.
