Contrary to the beliefs of many nurses, EMRs can be expected to save nursing time. The greatest savings come in shift change/nursing report, care planning, MAR reconciliation, and order processing and follow up. Automated electronic charting may take longer but provides quality and safety benefits. Achieving these savings requires benefits planning, process changes, and change management, all with strong executive sponsorship.
