Project management consists of the repetitive and cyclical interaction between the initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing processes. This article seeks to apply the 2 of these processes, monitoring and controlling, to an electronic health record module upgrade. Recommendations such as flexibility, tracking changes, project teams, milestones, and testing changes before implantation are discussed and applied to a case study.
