Presentation: The Electronic Health Record and My IHIS (Integrated Healthcare Information System) Adventure as a Physician Super User

Implementing a hospital based electronic health record system (EHR-S) is fraught with many challenges.  This presentation will focus on a solo medical librarian’s role as a physician super user at one hospital, during the implementation phase (Go Live) of its EHR-S. IHIS is the hospital’s branded version of EPIC. The presentation will also cover the training she received to prepare her for her physician super user role during the initial month long Go Live EHR-S implementation.
