  • How to identify useful EHR features that physicians most likely are not using
  • Effective ways to use the EHR in the hospital and office, as well as the important issue of staff access to EHR data
  • Strategies to use with patients who collaborate, and how to monitor the EHR's performance to ensure that it remains effective
