C Suite Leadership Critical to Success of EMRs

JMcDaniel - 08/26/2010

Although IT will certainly play a major role in developing and implementing Electronic Medical Record technologies, the projects must be led by the C Suite. That is the recommendation of the College of Healthcare Information Management Executive's "Meaningful Use" guide for CIOs, as reported by Information Week.

The guide stresses that EMR implementation cannot be viewed as an IT project; it must be a collaborative effort between administration, faculty and medical staff. Mutual agreement by everyone involved - resulting in a an uniform plan - will lead to the highest quality care, as well as qualifying for government Meaningful Use incentives.

What role does the C Suite in your company play in implementing EMRs? How important are consulting resources in helping you find the best ways to implement certified EHR technology?
