Your road to a successful EMR implementation requires careful planning and execution of many events over many months (or years). One of the most important set of events early on, is the development of eight key strategies. They include:
- Software Rollout
- Site Rollout
- Change Leadership/Go-Live Readiness
- Scanning and Data Pre-Population
For your EMR drive, consider this illustration. Your goals/objectives are the hub, your strategies are the spokes that provide the stability, and your plans/ programs are the tires that smooth the ride. While the road at times can be bumpy, with well-defined strategies supporting your goals and driving your plans, you’ll have sound wheels that will ease your journey and increase your chances of successfully arriving at your destination.
