When choosing the members of your organization's electronic health records (EHR) implementation team, consider the characteristics that an ideal team would have. Take the time to select carefully because the people who drive the process and create the plans will, no doubt, affect your chances of achieving a successful implementation.

Select team members who are:

  • Adaptable and open to new ideas
  • Willing to share ideas
  • Good communicators
  • Team players
  • Capable of speaking their minds without coming across as arrogant or self-centered
  • Committed, active, and engaged
  • Models for others in the organization
