Implementation consideration

Since it is very likely that you have not had the opportunity to research and select a system, or to address the considerations for implementing a system, this discussion is designed to allow you to practice the things you will need to do for your Stage 4 assignment. For this discussion, we will use the description of the ChiroTouch chiropractic EMR software at the websites and and we will assume it is being implemented in a chiropractic practice. Review the Stage 4 assignment, focusing on the “Implementation Considerations” section: Implementation Strategy – Will the system be implemented on premise or as a cloud-based service? Explain your recommendation for the chiropractic practice. Implementation Considerations: Vendor agreement What does the chiropractic practice need to do to be able to start using the system? How much will it cost to use the system? Hardware and telecommunications What hardware will the chiropractic practice need to have in order to implement and use the solution? What kind of telecommunications will be needed for the solution, including local connectivity inside the practice and Internet access? Configuration What options does the vendor offer for configuring the off-the-shelf system to the chiropractic practice’s needs? How will the configuration be done and by whom? Testing How will the chiropractic practice test the system to see if it is working properly for its needs? Who should be involved in the testing? Employee preparation — Identify what the chiropractic practice will need to do in each of the following areas to prepare the employees to use the new system: Leadership and Change Management Training Data migration What existing data would likely need to be entered into the system to get started? How might this be accomplished? Maintenance Who will provide updates and corrections to the system? How will that be done?
