Implementation of an electronic medical record (EMR) system is occurring with increasing frequency in healthcare organizations. A thoughtful approach to the design of the EMR offers unique opportunities to influence patient care delivery, research, management decision-making, and clinical practice. Further, the design and implementation process offers opportunities for professional development of the participants and system architects. Our EMR implementation process is in its early stages, and this poster explicates the design strategy and vision that is guiding the development. A team of nurses, clerical representatives, and information systems specialists from our multicultural, multiethnic organization guides the design and development of our electronic nursing documentation. From the beginning, various members of the Team have participated in a variety of professional development activities. A research proposal to identify the attitudes and opinions of nursing staff to use of an EMR has been submitted to the IRB. The information from this study will guide and influence communications regarding the EMR and staff training. A quality improvement evaluation of the first-phase implementation was conducted, and the information gained was used to guide revision of the EMR system. Two articles have been published in a peer-reviewed journal: an article incorporating an extensive review of the literature addressing the benefits, barriers and metrics of EMR implementation; and a descriptive article of the processes and lessons learned from our successful first phase implementation. The next goal of the Team is to demonstrate to the managers of the nursing division the rich data mining opportunities present in our EMR database. Patient pain scale data will be extracted and analyzed, with resultant recommendations for quality improvement projects and opportunities for modifying and measuring clinical practice. This demonstration project is intended to serve as a model and example of the opportunities for clinical and management decision-making and planning.
