    I am a second-year graduate student working on my Masters of Science in Health Information Management. I'm in the development phase of a research proposal/project and would love to generate some discussion here from those with experience in rural health, specifically, Critical Access. I would love to discuss your experience with switching to a new EHR, specifically from one that was not "semantically compatible" with larger facilities to which you sent your patients with chronic conditions for more specialized care. I'm thinking explicitly about those who decided to piggyback off a larger healthcare facility's EHR contract.

    Any discussion generated here will help me to narrow and focus my research topic, so please feel free to reach out with any and all experiences. Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from many of you!
