What is the EMR Progress Assessment?
The EMR Progress Assessment (EPA) is a self-assessment tool for clinicians to assess their current EMR use and make improvements. It asks critical questions spanning three key functional areas of EMR use:
- Practice Management
- Information Management
- Diagnosis and Treatment Support
The EPA is a streamlined and effective online assessment featuring 10 key measures mapped against the three functional areas. It tracks and measures progress in EMR use against the EMR Maturity Model developed by OntarioMD.
The EPA is a fundamental component of OntarioMD's hands-on support offering to clinicians and primary care practices. Completed EPAs help can help uncover gaps in practice workflow, efficiency and patient care. This information helps OntarioMD's ability to tailor our Insights4Care Advisory Service and Practice Advisor and Peer Leader engagements to meet clinicians' unique practice needs and goals.
What can an EPA do for you?
The questions in the EPA were designed to help clinicians assess their most desired areas of improvement with their EMRs, and put them in the driver's seat to get there. Understanding and measuring current EMR use through the EPA can help clinicians prioritize practice improvements, focus conversations with EMR vendors, and guide discussions about practice efficiency with colleagues and practice staff.
