5 Ways to Boost Physician Acceptance of EHRs

  1. Provide special amenities to take the pain out of launching the software

As a special thanks to physicians during the first two weeks of launching EMR, TMC created a special menu in the cafeteria, and all meals were free. The hospital also invested in an on-site car detailing service. When physicians arrived in the morning, they handed their keys to a detailer. Leaving the hospital with a clean car was just a small reward for the time they took to learn the EMR. "We recognized that we couldn't make it pain-free, but we could let them [the physicians] know that they are important to us," says Warren.
