I am very pleased that light is finally being shed on this topic. It makes perfect sense, but so many practices have underestimated the impact of adequate training.

re: EHR Training: Are Your Doctors Fully Prepped?
As a physician trainer of EHR systems in a large teaching healthcare institution, I fully support all of the points made in this article. I have been responsible for training physicians from a paper environment to EHR and transitioning from a fully functioning EHR to another vendor. Regardless, physicians a) must be involved in the design process b) be given dedicated time for training and practice c) have sufficient at-the-elbow support at go-live and beyond. If any one of these 3 are lacking, success is compromised.

re: EHR Training: Are Your Doctors Fully Prepped?
Based on this article, and the one posted about the National Institute of Standards and Technology wanting input on how to make EHRs more usable, it would seem that more clinicians should be involved in the EHR design process to help in both the training and usability issues.
