2Electronic Medical Records Change Plan Part IIIn health care, electronic medical records (EMR) are changing the way medical professionals can handle patient’s medical information. EMR’s have saved time from documenting information, to quickly transferring information with the click of a button. The medical assistant or physician no longer has to search paper records for patient charts. Trinity Health Care will continue to focus on the strategies for implementing the proposed changes of the EMR implementation. The EMR change plans part II will describe the methods that will be used to monitor implementation, examine the relationship between the organization’s related processes, systems, and personal or professional roles and their affect on the proposed organizational changes, and identify communication techniques used to address any implementation issues.Methods Used To Monitor EMR ImplementationTrinity Health Care continues to look at various methods that can be used to monitor the EMR implementation. The hospital wants to change from paper charting to the electronic system 100% to keep track of patient information; patient time is more effective, and convenient for multiple areas of the hospital to retrieve the patient’s information. The methods used are tools such as data collection tools to capture measures from pre to post EMR implementation. The same process was done for six months and then again at 12 months. The data collected was done on staff administration measures and physician clinical measures was how long it took to pull charts, file lab visits, place notes, billing, and time that was spent writing in the chart. The physician methods included: the time he or she spent on charting, reviewing labs, consult notes with patients, writing prescriptions, and taken the time with the patient. Physicians were asked in questionnaires if they spent more time charting, felt as

Using questionnaires interviewees are open about the challenges of using EMRs (Miller, and Sim, 2004). Relationship between Organization’s Related Processes, Systems, Personal or Professional Roles and Affect on the Proposed Organizational ChangeExamining the relationship between Trinity Health Care related processes, systems, personal or professional roles and how they affect the changes of the EMR system can allow
