Your first time here? Welcome, I'm glad you've dropped in.... David Soul (aka Bricoleur)

In this article in Physicians Practice, subtitled “Steps to a Successful EMR Implementation,” Elaine Zablocki
writes that

“… selecting and installing an EMR is just the
first step in a major process that will transform the workflow within
your office. You can’t just flip a switch and expect the transition to
take care of itself. Taking the time to visualize all the essential
implementation steps will lead to a smooth, successful conversion.”

She goes on to lay out steps you can and should take in your implementation process.
