Commentary: Project Must Be Physician Led
A second key component in the physician engagement strategy was that all training was physician led. One physician was assigned to oversee training. This physician helped to develop all training materials and recruit and teach other "super user" physicians to lead all training. In every training session, there was a super user present to answer questions and help frame things in a context that physicians would understand.
This diversified physician leadership worked hand in hand with administration as well as with the CMO and all other physician leadership to promote CPOE as a physician-led quality initiative and was the main key to success at St. Margaret Hospital.
