2:20 PM CASE STUDY: Embedding Benefits Realisation in Overall Strategy to Evaluate and Realise the Benefits of Your EMR Implementation

Successful delivery of EMR is inherently linked to benefits realisation. Bendigo Health regards it as a key business function integral to developing their business case. They defined relevant and measurable benefits supported by baseline data across the domains of financial, safety and quality and operational improvement. Benefits realisation is a useful tool
for estimating what they could derive through the implementation of the EMR in relation to these benefits.
  • Benefits realisation process for EMR implementation – overview and main learnings through process
  • Defining the benefit –the single biggest learning and single biggest trip-wire
  • Benchmarking their system for monitoring and measuring benefits against external bodies
  • Embedding Benefits Realisation Monitoring (BRM) into core business processes
