Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The selection of an enterprise-wide electronic medical record (EMR) by a medical center is a major undertaking that will define its future clinical processes for many years. The parameters that drive the selection include the clinical requirements, the financial needs of the medical center, the geographic setting, the need for outreach into the community, and an analysis of the existing and predicted flow of information and work within the clinical systems.
