Much of what drives successful CDRC projects lies outside the scope of technology—in the realm of “human factors” in organizational alignment, but CIOs and their organizations are often at the center of these projects on account of the pivotal role technology plays in the facilitating of CDRC.
That means, it’s essential for IT organizations to understand when and how to engage other stakeholders in the process—so that everyone shares in the risks and rewards of a successful CDRC effort.
Getting clinicians to engage with the IT organization to coordinate workflows and activities, sharing an understanding of the “whys” of necessary activities and changes, and aligning disparate constituencies behind a mission of improvement requires experience and finesse.
You’ll need to understand the numerous points of integration and be prepared—with experienced and communicative/collaborative staff—to navigate these waters.
As much as anything, implementing a CDRC program is an exercise of intensive change management. It will require careful coordination between in-house stakeholders, fast-moving vendors, and many clinicians and administrators who fall outside of your control.

“Partnering with S&P for the contract negotiation and pre-implementation preparedness for our revenue cycle system conversion put my organization in a position to be successful from day 1. I truly believe the resources we invested in both of these items prior to the official kick off of our project saved our institution in both of these areas many times over. Add to this the experience, insight and complete transparency that S&P brings to the partnership, and I feel that my organization is now in a position to take our system conversion live on time and within budget. ”
