Abstract:  The typical implementation of an electronic medical record (EMR) is to automate what we’ve always been doing. With new governmental incentives all clinics are rethinking how they will use an EMR.                                                                  

  • Challenges of moving from a paper to electronic medical record.                            
  • Progress report of how this implementation has been going.                                      
  • How has project management been affected by this transformation.                        
  • Have there been any new processes or changes instituted as a result EMR implementation?
