As we plan for 2023, ASCs are doing themselves a disservice by continuing to chart on paper. Between the increased utilization of the ASC space for surgical care and the ever-growing need to communicate patient information across all avenues of care, it’s getting harder and harder to continue the argument against implementing an EHR.
Here are five common roadblocks it’s time to overcome, written by Kelli McMahan, VP of Facility Development at Compass Surgical Partners and Maura Cash, RN, BSN, CASC, VP of Clinical Strategies at HST Pathways.
When it comes down to it, ASCs who want to remain competitive, maintain compliance, perform cases efficiently, and retain the best team will move away from paper and switch to digital charting.
