Electronic Health Records: How Lifespace Communities Adopted a System

Published On: Oct 09, 2012

Lifespace Communities, Inc., a large independent living provider headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, launched a national search for the right electronic health record (EHR) partner with software and an implementation philosophy that aligned with the organization. 

The project began with a comprehensive, corporate-wide evaluation of the documentation workflow within each community.

Lifespace selected Optimus EMR to implement electronic health records in all 10 of its communities within 16 months. Following implementation, Lifespan continues to measure its electronic medical records system success and has found improvements in reimbursement, risk (legal) avoidance, and verifiable time savings.
