Effects of Poorly Implemented Hospital Management Software

Even the most advanced hospital management system can have negative impacts on physicians and staff if it is not implemented correctly.

Consider the following to support staff and reduce burnout during hospital management system implementation:

  • Think about your workflow: Work with IT team and your hospital management system provider to improve the usability of a system in the context of your workflow. Many small changes in how, where, and when data is entered can have a substantial positive effect on your implementation.
  • Mastering the hospital management system takes time: Reduce frustration and increase efficiency by providing adequate training for staff.
  • Understand that the benefits of the hospital management system are only achieved through a working system: Administrators must know that any electronic clinical record problem can be solved through optimization and customization to adapt to institutional workflows of health.
  • A new electronic clinical record system is a group effort: Everyone who will use the system must be part of the implementation process. When staff concerns are addressed, their work-life balance will improve and result in better healthcare service.

Implementing a hospital management system can be a challenging task. It is important to consider the wishes and needs of both doctors and hospital staff to use a new hospital management system successfully.
