The National Committee for Quality Healthcare has put out a CEO Survival Guide to EHR(sorry I hate pdf files too). If you are quite familiar with EHR then you’ll be able to skim through a good portion of it. However, it does a pretty good job covering the issue of EHR’s.
The thing I found most valuable in this EHR Guide is a checklist of things you should consider when implementing an EHR. Use the checklist to help you avoid mistakes, but don’t let it overwhelm you. There is a lot to consider with an electronical health record, but you can do it. You’ll be happy you did. Just take your time and do it a step at a time. This guide will give you a good start.
