As you continue to learn, the shift to electronic patient information and communication can bring new opportunities to consider.
What do you know about your Electronic Health Record (E.H.R.) and its navigation. As a provider, what is the next step when a user has a negative experience? How do you equitably train staff and patients, is there a new update that caused an unintended outcome that you are unaware of?
The patient perspective requires asking about the patient experience with their care and effects.
How do quality improvement metrics align with the value of care within safety, prevention, pediatrics, or inpatient setting?
Perhaps a staff person who managed the migration from paper to E.H.R. or your patient portal moved on and took what they knew with them. This not only leaves a knowledge gap within the ordinary workflow, but what you do not know may cost you money. Be it fines, the cost of rolling out a plan of correction, or unrealized opportunities in the value-based-purchasing or pay-for-performance arena.
Having an expert manage just those pieces of the business may be worth considering.
Membership at the Clinician and Provider or Facility/LTC level not only walk you through the steps but align you with resources all in one convienent location. Those level include what is under the Consumer/Caregiver membership level too.
Additionally, becoming a member in national or regional organizations can provide insight as to what others are doing, provide online guidance and webinars or the lessons they learned.

Health literacy and clear communication between health professionals and patients are said to be the key to improving health and the quality of health care. Did you know there is a Health Literate Care Model for patients to become more engaged in prevention, decision-making, and self-management? Resources for Implementation, although available and aligned with a National Plan to improve health literacy, may require alignment with a community organization or group of professionals to review your community data needs and outcomes.
