Introduction In the wild world of healthcare, change doesnt come in small doses. Instead, it comes in the form of new regulations and mandates that can be hard to keep up with. Its likely that your practice is facing the challenge of adopting a new EHR. Some practices get started with EHR implementation feeling excited about their new system, only to end up feeling like they are up a creek without a paddle. We think that one of the easiest ways to avoid that stranded feeling in your practice is to have an Office Manager that takes an active role in managing the change the EHRs will bring. Think of the implementation process like a camping trip youre going to take with your staff. Someone needs to take on the responsibility of being the pack leader and getting everyone through the camping trip safely, and thats the Office Manager. Like camping, EHR implementation brings out mixed feelings. Some people love the adventure and see themselves becoming one with nature, some people loathe the idea and only picture themselves sleeping on dirt and swatting away bugs. The bottom line is this: some of your team members may find it exciting while others might fear it. 3 4. Introduction Those who are afraid of change will be resistant at some point, so you need to be prepared for that resistance and have a plan to help alleviate it, just as you would on a camping trip.
