Healthcare IT Consulting

Effectively Managing IT Resources Begins with the End in Mind

The adoption of legislation for health information technology (HIT) over the last 20 years was intended to counter excessive spending across provider types. Unfortunately, HIT has complicated both payment and delivery models and created a sense of dependency on vendors. From HITECH and MU to cost accounting and medical necessity determinations, providers across the U.S. are struggling to adopt best practices and effectively manage a patchwork of disparate solutions. BKD's health care IT consulting team understands these challenges and is here to help you reassess your IT goals, governance structure and associated costs.      
 
BKD can help your organization in the following areas:

System Alignment

Understanding the strategic data needs across the system is an essential first step in developing organizational alignment around IT investments. Whether it’s clinical, financial or operational, stakeholders are eager to access data and measure improvement.

Governance & Oversight

IT governance improves prioritization and decision making, but it’s often overlooked. BKD can help you build and execute governance strategy for disciplined, strategic decision making that leads to standardized operating practices.

Contract Review

BKD will conduct an inventory of existing IT-related contracts and help identify opportunities for standardization, consolidation and contract negotiation.

Decision Support

True connectivity between systems provides actionable data, efficiencies and better care. More data isn’t better if you don’t know what you’re measuring—or why. BKD can help you focus on the right data for your business to drive insights and decisions.

Post-Implementation

If you’ve recently migrated to a newer electronic health records (EHR) system or switched to a new system altogether, plenty of surprises are waiting around each corner. Our team of consultants has helped many providers navigate these difficult transitions and avoid significant financial disruptions.
