What potential problems do you see with this situation?

For this week’s discussion, you are the network executive responsible for several physician practices which are owned by the hospital that employs you. Three of the physician practices are on different electronic medical record (EMR) systems. The fourth practice was just acquired and the well-respected physician does all of his charting manually. The physicians are all reluctant to implement the new EMR system that the hospital’s IT director selected for them. They have voiced concerns about lost productivity if they implement the new system. Productivity is important because their pay is currently 100% volume based. What potential problems do you see with this situation? How would you attempt to convince the physicians to implement the EMR? Do you have any “outside the box” ideas to convinve the physicians to implement the EMR? (Think motivations and incentives)
