What Is the Arch Collaborative Guidebook?

The Arch Collaborative Guidebook is the result of thousands of hours of combined effort. Over 190 provider organizations around the world have measured the feedback of their clinicians, and the 100,000 clinicians who have participated by completing Collaborative surveys have dedicated an estimated 1,600 hours total to sharing their voices.

This incredible effort has allowed the Arch Collaborative to identify those organizations with the most successful EHR users. Leaders from these successful organizations have partnered with KLAS while also utilizing Arch Collaborative research findings to build this guidebook for EHR success.

There is no checklist for strong leadership; similarly, while this guide could be read as a checklist, it will be most effective when read as principles and opportunities for success meant to be skillfully applied according to an organization’s specific culture and circumstances.

This guidebook lays out the best practices identified in Collaborative data and shared by the most successful organizations in the Collaborative. If your organization is struggling with EHR satisfaction, start here!

It is expected that the principles in this guidebook will mostly remain consistent in future editions, but this guidebook may see significant additions over time as the Arch Collaborative continues to learn the science behind EHR success.

The principles in this guide come from two sources:

Evidence-Based Practices: Best practices validated by Arch Collaborative research that differentiate the high-performing organizations or have been documented to help organizations improve.

Leading Practices: Commonly reported keys to success as identified by leading organizations, though not yet broadly validated or too unquantifiable to fully validate.
