    This is an exciting event in your life. I live in the Atlanta, GA area of the US and also had the opportunity to do this first in 1995. It was a time when the whole hospital was going up on Meditech and at the same time we purchased the Medical Systems Management Software, now called PICIS to use for scheduling and case record entry. Someone came to the facility and gave 3 days of training. Then I was let loose and "built it out" for us.

    This last year it was required by corporate to change to a different software, actually the Meditech product which is what the hospital uses and there are some advantages but the former product was superior at this point. However my core team and I received our training and went to work and launced the program in August 03. Things are going pretty well but the main issue that we have is user's pulling wrong account numbers or schedulers giving a new account number and admissions not using that one but creating a new one.
    Of course it creates work for the ones who have to undo and move charges and documentation.

    How is your project going and what software is it?
