Summary

The implementation of electronic health records (EHR) is not a single project, but a series of initiatives that is best described as an ongoing journey, rather than a point of destination. This new book offers practical help for that journey -- with an examination of implementation challenges and solutions and their impact on clinical processes. Written by physicians, nurses, IT professionals, and academicians, this book brings a hands-on perspective to the challenges and solutions of EHR implementation. Twenty case studies illustrate how a variety of types of organizations have approached some of the more challenging implementation issues.

Chapters in the book cover the critical steps of EHR implementation:

·         Planning the EHR

·         Acquiring the ambulatory EHR

·         Intake and assessment

·         Provider order management

·         The medication process

·         Clinical documentation and support

·         Patient-provider E-communication and portals

·         Data sharing and interoperability

·         Implementing the ambulatory EHR

·         Making the EHR your legal health record
