  •  Big fan of emr (0+ / 0-)

    I'm retired hosps adm now but last act was implementing a cpoe for inpt pharmacy

    One reason I'm a big fan is that the HIM (Health information management) department -- or medical record dept -- was one of the depts that reported to me.

    Yes, especially in large medical institutions such as where I work, keeping your documents well organized and readily available is a bear of a job.

    emr will have some growing pains and my parting wisdom to anyone who listened was: train, train, train!

    Looking forward to your next entry wmspringer

    •  Training is huge (0+ / 0-)

      One standing practice at my company is that if doctors at one of your customers aren't getting sufficient training, you bring attention to it immediately. We don't want anybody using the software in an actual patient setting who doesn't know how to do it correctly.
