Converting Existing Records • Conversion strategies: • Total conversion • Incremental conversion • Hybrid conversion
Entering Live Data • Methods: • dictation and transcription • clinical templates • voice recognition • scanning
Computer Requirements • Input Devices • Workstations • desktop computers • laptop computers • tablet computers • personal digital assistants (PDAs) • smart phones
Computer Requirements • Networks • server = “hub” of network; houses data and applications • clients = computers that access the server over the network • wired network vs. wireless network
Hosting Choices • Locally Hosted Model • Application Service Provider Model • Blended or Hybrid Model
The Importance of Clinical Standards • For shared information to be useful, computer systems must be interoperable • No mandatory standards for clinical data exist yet.
