One of the challenges in healthcare is the transition from paper to electronic information. The presentation described some of the challenges of this transition, but there are more. There are still some smaller medical offices that have not made the leap to the electronic world and seem to be managing well with paper. Your role in healthcare informatics may be to coordinate or manage this transition or deal with an issue of storage, retrieval, retention or retrieval. 

In your post, describe a time when you were involved in a change from paper to electronic processes. What were some of the challenges you experienced? Were there any parts of the change you would have done differently? Can any of your improvements be applied to a hospital that is starting an EHR?
