Our integrated EHR project is in full swing. Many decisions were made in direction sessions by physician/APP champions and subject matter experts, and these allowed the IT team to begin building our system. Adoption sessions are 1/3 complete, and these will show our clinicians the decisions they made in our new system. We’ve also begun clinical system design (CSD) and curriculum review (CRB). In the CSD sessions, of which there will be six per specialty, clinicians and staff will design orders, documentation, communication and other tools that they will use. This will be specialty-specific and will help them get the most out of the system. In parallel, clinicians will work with the training team to design the clinical curriculum that will be used to train all end users.
