I found a pretty interesting blog about a Doctor in Canada’s experience implementing an EMR. So far it has a pretty good overview of a bunch of things to consider when implementing an EMR. It is also good because it comes for a doctor’s perspecitve rather than a vendor or tech person. In fact, some of the posts I’ve read have some good asides describing some of the technology so even the non technical user can understand. I look forward to reading more as this blog continues. I was going to do this myself when I started to implement my EMR. I’m glad I didn’t, because it wouldn’t have been what I expected. Although it may have been interesting seeing a tech person try to learn not only a new software system, but also understand how a clinic works. Oh how quickly life changes and you end up blogging about EMR.
