The adoption of EHR/EMR is more often than not a gradual, piecemeal endeavor. First billing systems are considered, then clinical values and nursing notes from med-surg, followed by the lab and moving into CPOE and the like. In this process, there tends to be a lack consistency in systems which hinders real interoperability, making it difficult to interface different components, etc. If you are a small to mid sized facility trying to make the journey as smooth as possible (who most likely does not have the funds or resources to transition in one pass), what are some top recommendations and tips to making adoption as smooth, and integrated, as possible?
