6 Steps to Canvas EMR Implementation
1.
Decide if Canvas is a Fit

Schedule a demo, explore Canvas’s clinical and operational functionality and then decide if Canvas outperforms other EMR vendors you are considering. Our goal is to give you as much information as you need to make a purchase decision. We will provide access to a sandbox of the Canvas application for you to get a feel for the platform as well as references to current customers to talk about their experience.

2.
Consider Integration

Canvas is meant to integrate with your existing interfaces and community resources. At a minimum, this means porting over your fax number, enrolling your payers with our clearinghouse, and getting bidirectional lab feeds running. We also load your preferred specialists and imaging centers into Canvas so that sending referrals and closing loops is seamless. Finally, if health information exchanges or other information technology vendors are important, we will work with you to determine what we can deliver and when.

3.
Plan for Data Migration

Once you have chosen to invest, the first thing we do is gain access to a full backup of your current data, which we have executed successfully with both remotely hosted and on-premise EMR databases. Then we begin to import data into Canvas. Patient demographics and information like medications, problems, and allergies is relatively straightforward. While more challenging, our team has successfully imported clinical notes and documents at a high level of fidelity with a wide variety of EMRs.

4.
Schedule Training and Site Visit

We will work with you to configure Canvas properly, including clinical content and charge schedules. A few weeks prior to go-live, we’ll conduct role-based trainings to familiarize relevant team members with clinical, practice management, and billing workflows. Either before or during go-live, one of our team can visit your practice to work side-by-side with you on implementation and training.

5.
Go Live

Go-live is when you start using Canvas with real patients in your practice. We will be with you, either in-person or remotely depending on your preference, to make sure everything goes smoothly. There is always fine tuning to do once you have a handful of encounters in Canvas under your belt: changing clinical microtemplates, setting up new automations, modifying practice management settings, and more. We are here to help with it all.

6.
Enjoy Ongoing Support

All EMR contracts should contain assurances against broken promises and provide support over the long term. Our Performance Warranty means that if we are not meeting expectations, you can terminate the agreement and receive all payments back. (We do not expect this to happen). For our Standard plans, we also offer a MIPS guarantee: if you receive a negative adjustment, we will cover it. And for everyone, we provide unlimited 24/7 support at no charge. We expect this to be a long, productive partnership for us both.
