This report summarizes the findings of 75 articles that identify best practices for implementing and optimizing electronic health records (EHRs). The report includes a conceptual framework to structure the analysis and describe lessons learned for organizations that might be facing EHR implementation obstacles. Throughout the EHR implementation process, planning and modifications are continually needed to address technological, professional, and organizational perspectives. These perspectives must be incorporated at each stage to promote implementation and optimization of a system that is technically functional, integrated into the workflow of its users, and is part of a larger strategy to meet organizational goals.
