Six Golden Rules of EMR Implementation

Michelle McNickle, Healthcare IT News

A few months ago, we chronicled the 7 most deadly sins of EMR implementation. From ignoring nurses to declining help, these offenses can be hard to make right.

But, in an effort to help big and small practices alike avoid the most common EMR faux pas, we followed up with Rosemarie Nelson, principal of the MGMA Consulting Group, and asked for her opinion on the best practices for implementing an EMR system.

Here are Nelson’s six golden rules of EMR implementation:

 1.  Include Nursing Staff
2.  Recognize the opportunity to change and improve your workflow.
3.  Schedule even more training
4.  Anticipate the stress and effort required over several month
5.  Round on Users
6.  Personalize and recognize the difference among Physicians
