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
