Developing a comprehensive electronic medical record system to serve ambulatory care providers in a large health care enterprise requires significant time and resources. One approach to achieving this system is to devise a series of short-term, workable solutions until a complete system is designed and implemented. The initial solution introduced a basic (mini) medical record system that provided an automated problem/summary sheet and decentralization of ambulatory-based medical records. The next step was to partner with an information system vendor committed to continued development of the long-term system capable of supporting the health care organization well into the future.
