Hello;

Thank you for writing in today. May I ask you about this question? Is this for a homework project? If so, are you looking for length or just ideas to consider? Please let me know. Lisa
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I am looking for both length and ideas as well. Anything would be helpful. Thanks!

Expert:  Lisa, MSN, FNP-BC, CCRN replied 5 years ago.
Could you tell me more about the assignment. Particularly the word length and due date?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
It just a discussion so it does not required much so under 100 words sound goods as long as it covered the two questions ask. Thanks!

Before implementing an EMR system, clinic staff need to consider many factors. First of all, the overall design of the system must be considered. Does the system meet the needs of the providers, staff, and patients? Also, cost is a factor. The implementation of an EMR system is costly. Cost can be prohibitive; however, over time, implementation of electronic records may prove to be economical in comparison to paper costs over time. In addition, the learning curve must be considered. The ability to train staff, while meeting the demands of the practice, are important factors to consider. Also, when considering the implementation of an EMR system, staff acceptance and willingness to support this change is an important factor. Finally, availability of technical support is important when considering EMR implementation. If the clinic chooses to implement an EMR system, once the system, ongoing staff monitoring, mentoring, and feedback are necessary to ensure appropriate documentation and utilization of the EMR. In addition, provisions must be made to ensure that patient privacy is maintained. For example, policies should be implemented to ensure monitors are not left unattended. I hope this helps..................... It may be a bit lengthy for your needs; however, I tend to be wordy, so you may be able to edit. I hope it provides you with some general ideas for your discussion. Lisa
