What’s most important with regard to staffing for an EHR implementation team, as one is moving into the initial stages of an implementation? Is it more important to look at formal college degrees, or core competencies from experience 11/13/14

What everyone has told us at HCI is that core competencies from experience are by far the most important qualifications needed in building an EHR implementation team. Like anything else that is practical, involves many, many tasks, and unfolds over time, EHR implementation requires strong real-world experience. Put another way, the best people to help implement an EHR have already implemented an EHR. This is particularly so with regard to EHR go-lives, because the complexity of the processes involved is quite significant.
