When value endures: legacy data viewer

Melissa Baysari (Editor)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


A large hospital replaced its in-house developed system of electronic clinical records with a new commercial integrated electronic health record (EHR) called “Humongous”. The legacy system consisted of several different programs each covering different specialties or areas of the hospital, for example, laboratory, anesthesia, radiology, and emergency department as well as two physicians order entry systems. Because of these multiple legacy programs, the hospital information technology department had also developed an integrated viewer to provide a single point of access to clinical notes, reports, and laboratory results that were available in its various clinical programs. Perhaps an in-depth exploration of the way physicians practiced their work to identify what worked well with the legacy systems and what users liked about “UniView”, and then incorporating knowledge gained into design of the new EHR would have resulted in a more useful, usable, and therefore used system.
