EHR implementation is not an event as much as a process. The key to implementation is managing a variety of transitions from the paper chart to the electronic chart. Your transition strategies and decisions could have repercussions on patient care and malpractice risk.
EHR transition must be based on sound clinical decision making and coordination of dramatic changes to clinical operations. In too many cases, practices let the technological issues dominate EHR deployment and relegate clinical issues to an afterthought.
