EHR implementation plan

An electronic health record (EHR) implementation plan is a comprehensive set of strategies and steps used by a health care organization when preparing for and executing the adoption of an electronic-based health care system.

The format and content of an EHR implementation plan will vary depending upon the expectations and needs of the organization, but it most usually incorporates information about software and hardware updates, expected time frames, chosen methods of training accompanying the adoption, cost estimates, distribution of labor and responsibilities and workflow changes, among other factors. The goal is to provide a specific and organized plan of attack in order to account for the many decisions and factors that contribute to an EHR upgrade.
