Implementing the EMR is the single largest change to clinical process, and having a proven team of clinicians and support personnel working "elbow to elbow" with client staff has proven to pay dividends for Santa Rosa clients.

"Implementing your new EMR is not only among the largest undertaking in terms of effort and expenditure; it represents a huge risk to patient care and the health of the enterprise if not managed effectively.
