If you’re in the market for new Electronic Health Records (EHR) software, you know that EHR systems are far from one-size-fits-all. Whether you’re already using electronic records, or are switching from a paper-based process for the first time, there are a host of factors to consider. Your organization will need to reflect on its specific needs for the new system – from ease of use and integration with other health software, to data security, legal compliance, and staff readiness and training. With so many variables to consider, the process can be overwhelming for even the most seasoned professional.
Popcorn RFP is designed to facilitate and expedite the procurement process by taking the guesswork out of RFI and RFP creation. Through a simple question and answer interface, you will be prompted to reflect on your organization’s unique needs and goals. Your answers will automatically populate your RFx document, eliminating the need to work with templates that may not reflect your priorities. With Popcorn RFP, you can easily add team members to collaborate seamlessly on your project.
Our EHR RFI and RFP kernels are written specifically with the needs of healthcare organizations in mind. While some considerations in choosing EHR software – such as how it is hosted or how data is backed up – may be relevant to any type of software purchase, we understand that EHR systems also need to meet industry-specific requirements. Check out how our kernels support your needs in practice.
First, our kernels help you to sift through your requirements whatever your priorities. Here, you might consider listing features and functions such as intelligent patient workflows, task management capabilities, easy patient scheduling, pre-built templates, and accessibility to different devices.
In choosing EHR software, integration with other electronic health tools is a major priority. Our kernel prompts you to consider any integration you may need with practice management software, billing systems, or local pharmacy or lab services.
A key issue in EHR selection is legal and regulatory compliance. Our kernel reminds you to note down HIPPA, meaningful use compliance, or any other category of concern to your organization.
With the growing complexity and functionality of EHR software, and the critical nature of medical records, your organization may be looking for vendors who provide training in using their tool. Our EHR kernel helps you ensure that the needs of patients and staff are front and center in your RFx, so that you find the best possible software for your organization.
Purchasing EHR software is a much more challenging task than your run-of-the-mill software procurement project. Our specially-designed kernels center concerns like compliance, training, usability, and integration so that your RFx reflects the breadth of your organization’s needs.
