Week 4 Assignment: Selling Your System Presentation

Imagine that you are a project manager at an electronic health record company that has recently bought their competitor. You are going into a facility that has been using the old competitor’s system and you will be in charge of discussing the effects of upgrading or changing EHR systems.

Using the course materials and a minimum of two outside resources, discuss the implications of upgrading or changing to a different EHR.

Include the process, the people involved, and the training needed, as well as the positive and negative outcomes that may occur during transition.

Keep in mind that you work for the EHR company, and you need to focus on selling the new system to the facility.

Use the Kaltura recording tool to create your presentation. It should be no more than five minutes in duration and should include audio with your integrated PowerPoint. Please see the Getting Started with Kaltura link in the main menu if you need to review how to use the recording tool.
