The day is fast approaching for me to present at the Pacific Coast College Health Association conference in Hawaii. In fact, I have less than a month to finish my preparations. I feel pretty good about my ability to present and also my knowledge of EMR, but presenting something always gets my nerves going. I think once I get started talking about EMR, then I won’t be able to stop. My real hope is that the people that attend my session will be interested in what I have to say, find it useful and ask good questions. Honestly, a part of me really wishes that I was a member of a panel where I just answered questions about EMR. I think that would be a lot of fun.

Since it’s not a panel, then I’d love to hear any feedback from people on things I should include in my presentation about “Lessons Learned from EMR Implementation.” I have a ton of things already planned about EMR implementation, but I’m sure there are some important things that I’ve missed. Time has a way of doing that to you.

Either way, I’ll be happy if one person in my session on EMR goes away saying they were better prepared to implement an EMR system, then I’ll be happy.
