10 EHR lessons from 10 practices

Medical Economics has another article titled, "10 EHR lessons from 10 practices." Here's a list of those 10 practical lessons:
1. INVOLVE THE WHOLE STAFF
2. STUDY YOUR WORKFLOW

3. ASK FOR HELP
4. CONSIDER A PATIENT PORTAL
5. CUSTOMIZE YOUR NOTES
6. CONSIDER A DIGITAL PEN
7. START WITH THE BASICS
8. LEARN THE WHOLE SYSTEM
9. "GO LIVE" ONLY WHEN READY
10. TECH SUPPORT MUST BE ACCESSIBLE
Sounds like some practical advice to me. I'm sure we could learn many more lessons from medical practices that have gone through the EHR selection and implementation process.
