3 Lessons Learned During EMR Implementation

I love first hand blog accounts of people’s EMR implementations. They teach a lot of great lessons about implementing an EMR. Plus, they remind those of us that knew, but forgot. Here’s one of those accounts and here’s his 3 lessons:
1. Don’t forget to decrease patient volume for at least 6 weeks, even if just going from one EMR to another
2. Be ready to make changes on the fly to your EMR
3. Have great support from your vendor on opening day and beyond

Good advice for EHR implementations!
