The new CAST 7-Stage Adoption Model is generic and based on the types of functionalities, their sophistication and focus, as opposed to rigid specific functions. This approach makes the model applicable to multiple LTPAC settings and business lines. This sets the CAST 7-Stage Adoption Model apart from previous EHR adoption models, which focused primarily on inpatient settings such as hospitals and nursing homes.
"The CAST EHR Selection Portfolio's new 7-stage adoption model was tailored to help long-term care providers not only improve efficiency, but also quality of care for their residents," said Majd Alwan, Ph.D., executive director of CAST. "We hope that our new adoption model will make it easier for more and more providers to integrate advanced EHR functionalities into their operations, and use them to continuously improve care quality."
