Organizations should actively facilitate reporting of errors or barriers to care resulting from EHR use, even if the findings are used only locally. Organizations must also carefully review their existing policies and procedures before implementation. For instance, although EHR systems can improve transmission of critical information through electronic notifications, this may do more harm than good if there are no policies for appropriate follow-up. [9] The Veterans Affairs health system exhibits many model organizational features, including a fair amount of central control, standardized procedures for collecting error data and implementing upgrades, and a recent emphasis on studying innovations from end users.

4] We have repeatedly found that inappropriate infrastructure can negatively shape user attitudes towards software systems themselves, as it can impact on usability and performance. Inappropriate infrastructure, such as a slow wireless connection, may for example, reduce the speed of a system, which is an important (if not the most important) factor in determining adoption (box 2, example 2). 7 TRAIN STAFF Trained users tend to be more satisfied with new technologies than those who have not been adequately trained.
