An article on Becker’s Hospital Review discussed how Montefiore Medical Center was able to achieve 100% implementation of EMR and computerized physician order entry (CPOE).

Jack Wolf, Montefiore’s vice-president and CIO, lists these 6 best practices that they attribute to their success:

  1. Meaningful Use is not an IT project
  2. Physicians need to take ownership
  3. Educate all hospital employees, physicians and staff
  4. Use a diverse implementation team
  5. Create an optimization team
  6. Do not underestimate the power of system availability
