Most practices experience a dip in clinician productivity (and revenue) during the transition to a new EHR, as providers learn the system. In
fact, the biggest barrier to adoption, according to surveys of doctors, is not the cost of a new system, or fear of new technology. It's concern about lost
productivity that work flow changes inevitably bring.

Fortunately, the dip is almost always temporary. After the initial learning curve, productivity rises--and usually surpasses the practice's pre-EHR days. But how deep the decline goes and how long it lasts varies widely by practice.

It's vital to mitigate and shorten your productivity dip. How to do it? This article offers some simple advice from experts who've managed thousands of transitions.
