Clinical Transformation


There are many benefits to EMR, but what makes Jefferson's EMR program unique is its inclusion of clinical transformation. empower™ is the initiative by which JUP physicians and staff leverage technology to ensure the "IDEAL" patient experience.

The Plan

Through empower™, each practice will receive the following personalized attention from our clinical analysts, physician advocates, and EMR sponsors:

  • Evaluation of the workflow needs of each individual practice
  • Identification of areas of workflow improvement
  • Identification, design, and implementation of areas of standardization across practices and departments
  • Identification and implementation of best practices in medicine, administration, patient care, and EMR usage.

The Results

By measuring the above enterprises and adopting our findings into EMR and clinical practice, JUP will be able to:

  • Provide a clearinghouse of "best practices" for physicians and staff
  • Make certain that EMR is working to its maximum potential for each practice
  • Eliminate frustrating tasks, such as looking for misplaced charts
  • Provide superior patient care
  • Improve quality of life amongst all Jefferson staff
  • Decrease liability
  • Ensure a gentle transformation to EMR
