New EHR Implementation

    I am the HIM supervisor for a CMHC and my organization we will be implementing a new EHR at the end of this year.  I am currently heading a chart committee to determine chart structure and defining the medical record.

    Can anyone share their best practices, policies/procedures, and/or general chart structure. I would greatly appreciate the guidance.

    Thank you!

    Hi Kelly,
    I was about to post similar question as our medical practice is planning to transition to EPIC physician solution later this year.

    I am interested in knowing tips and strategies from trusted colleagues who have been through the process. There's a lot I know we need to think about and start planning for such as what to do about attachments we have in the current system, patient portals...

    Wonder if AHIMA  has a toolkit for transitioning to new EHR?  If not perhaps, we could develop one!
