HIM transition to EHR


We are an acute care hospital with 150 licensed bed. I am seeking advice from those of you who have transition to an electronic medical record. We are very much a paper based organization and are converting big bang in a few months.

What lessons have you learned? If you could have done one thing different, what would that be? Did you need to add temporary staff to assist in getting through the transition? Is there anything IT could have done to make the transition smoother for you?

Thanks for any feedback you can provide!
