LeadingAge Releases Peer Reviews of EHRs, Best Practices for Implementation

In an effort to provide a more personal way of comparing electronic health record (EHR) products, LeadingAge’s Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) released this week a written comparison of 13 EHR products as evaluated by providers. 

The report, “Electronic Health Record (EHR) Implementation, Use, and Impacts: Provider Case Studies,” comes in addition to other CAST comparison resources that aid in the selection process of EHR products for long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) providers. 

“Our hope is that these case studies will help providers learn from their peers’ experiences. In combination with our whitepaper, matrix and online selection tool, providers now have a comprehensive portfolio to help them select and implement an EHR system,”
 said Majd Alwan, Ph.D, LeadingAge senior vice president for technology and director of CAST. 


Thirteen providers in the case studies evaluated a variety of EHR products and also provided comments on implementation, lessons learned while using the product, and advice for future use. 

Through the use of these studies and their other EHR selection tools, CAST aims to better equip providers in selecting an EHR product that meets the business and functional requirements of their organization. 

Featured providers in the report include The Kendal Corporation, Lifespace Communities, Inc, and Presbyterian Home & Services of Kentucky.
