Have I Got a Story for You…

November 17, 2010

Have a look at the ONC’s Health Information Technology site page Health IT Journeys:  Stories from the Road where testimonials about implementing an EHR are solicited and posted.  There are case studies ranging from solo practices to hospitals and health plans.  You’ll read about the success stories of physician offices that have found the technology streamlines office workflow and improves patient safety.  You’ll also learn about the bumps in the road that some practices have faced on the way to full EHR adoption.

Check out the true-life tips and best practices shared by practices like yours. Here are a few:

  • Develop simple and complete patient demographic and medical information paper forms that match the software for easy entry
  • Schedule short, daily meetings to work through small but important implementation details
  • Don’t let the implementation stall out – continue to press on to maximize the functionality of the implementation
