When it comes to EHR software, one of the more stressful areas (aside from choosing the perfect system) is training your staff on the new software. The best thing your practice can do to help ensure a successful implementation is to have a strong training plan serving as the backbone of the process.

Asking your staff for their input when developing a training plan helps make everyone in your practice feel like they are an active member in the process.

Training needs vary from practice to practice, depending on if you are making the switch from an old software to a new one, or transitioning from paper methods to electronic.
