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 several physician order entry systems. The implementation of “Humongous” proceeded smoothly overall, with no more problems than to be expected in a new implementation. In fact, post-implementation user surveys showed a high degree of physician satisfaction with “Humongous”, with many of them commenting that they saw little to no impact on their daily workflows. To provide continued access to legacy data not in “Humongous”, a new viewer was designed and implemented by the information technology department.
