"You can ask physicians to look up results on a computer, but if you're trying to install an electronic record or order entry system, you must have a physician I.T. champion-it's not worth it to even try without one," says Melinda Costin, vice president of implementation services at Houston-based HealthLink Inc., a consulting firm.
Then you may have the makings of a physician information technology champion, says Melinda Costin, vice president of implementation services at Houston-based Healthlink Inc., a consulting firm.
"If you have a physician who is complaining about the clinical I.T. tools they're using, then you have the makings of an I.T. champion," she says.
"If you have a champion who is using a computer all the time, they have forgotten the phobia that most doctors have," Costin says. "They lose that understanding of what it's like to fear a computer. Costin says effective physician I.T. champions often share a few traits:
• They are practicing physicians who will use the technology themselves. "A doctor who is no longer practicing loses some legitimacy with other physicians when it comes to I.T. implementations," she says.
• They are personable and can communicate well with their peers even in tense situations. "A champion has to be able to listen to complaints-and be able to recognize valid ones-but always communicate with a smile on their face," Costin says. "They should be someone that others are compelled to follow, or at least listen to."
• They do not think they are the only one capable of leading a project. "Physician I.T. champions must be self-confident but they shouldn't be the kind of people who think they, and only they, can tackle an implementation," Costin says.
