Computerized Health Records

I’m studying for my Health & Medical class and need an explanation.


Floribama Hospital just learned that their current EHR will no longer be supported by the IS vendor starting in two years. In the hospital’s rush to select an IS, it decided to take some short cuts. These short cuts included:

• Creating a committee of only three people to select the system

• Not going on a site visit

• Not performing systems analysis

• Deferring planning until after the contract is signed

This was the recommendation of the chief executive officer of the healthcare facility. The logic behind his recommendation to defer planning was that there will be some time after the contract is signed but before the software is available, so the planning can fill in this time period. The contact was signed yesterday so the planning is ready to commence
