MEDITECH Profile Standardization
This wiki provides a broad overview of items to consider while doing a Profile Standardization.
- Upgrades may involve many menu changes especially for customized versions.
- Access Provisioning may take too long for users to gain access.
- Lack of visibility means increased workload for service desk requesting status of requests.
- Opportunity to clean up the database.
Processes Involved in Standardization
- Look at Source Data: ADP (employees) and FIM (contractors) - Determine who has access, identify job codes to be used.
- Module Standardization – Some may need more categories and some may need less.
- Secondary Access Standardization – Ensure access is setup correctly for users.
- Create and Update Policies and Procedures – Look for outdated policies to remove and add any additional as needed.
- Training and Education – Even if the workflow itself doesn’t change based on role, navigation may look different and offer new enhancements. Provide job aids if needed.
Benefits of Standardization
- Visibility – Processes may be changed or added to be more proficient.
- Process Efficiency – Fewer people/steps involved resulting in faster turnaround.
- Audit/Compliance – More consistency.
- Reporting/Analytics – Improved accuracy.
- Associate Performance – Faster access.
- There are various areas or teams that need to work together to ensure a smooth transition. Collaboration is important to make sure each area is on the same page. Some of them may include:
- Financial Analysts
- Clinical Analysts
- Human Resources – Data for employees/contractors
- MEDITECH – Data owners/managers
