Creating a Leadership Team for Successful EHR Implementation Creating a Leadership Team for Successful EHR Implementation This resource is intended to aid providers and health IT implementers in identifying a leadership team for a successful EHR implementation. Selecting the right people for an EHR implementation team is a critical step in a successful implementation. In general, members of the team should be enthusiastic, well-respected and forward thinking. Team members should bring differing perspectives on how the EHR will be used and provide a wide array of skills and knowledge.
