The article discusses training and preparing medical staff for hospitals' transition to electronic medical recording (EMR). It is reported that less than 1% of hospitals across the U.S. achieved the Stage 7 EMR adoption model compliance at the end of 2009 while 11.5% are at Stage 0. Training, budgeting and scheduling are cited as concerns for most hospitals, nurses and physicians. It is suggested that doctors can be given incentives to learn EMR more quickly and cut labor costs.
