Current Status, Challenges, Issues

Text Description is below the image.
  • Current Status:
    • Trinity is 1/3 to ½ complete with implementation of Genesis
    • Trinity has made limited progress with Genesis-enabled clinical transformation
    • PGVA recommendations—focus on clinical process transformation to obtain value from Genesis
  • Challenges:
    • Capturing and measuring value through improvement in clinical workflow
    • Front-end customization to achieve adoption has led to proliferation of order sets that do not necessarily lead to better outcomes
    • Missed expectations with some Cerner components
    • Recognition of on-going software upgrade requirements
    • Limited industry experience, high resource demand for "customizations", and personnel "burnout"
    • Technical risk mitigation strategies
  • Key Questions:
    • How do we continue implementation while significantly ramping up clinical transformation?
    • How do we increase value and reduce risk?
