Abstract

Appalachian Regional Healthcare is in the midst of transforming itself into a new organization in terms of culture, professional practice, and work processes. Just a few years ago, many members of its work force had never used computer technology. Today, nearly all employees, including nurses, have been trained in basic computer skills and are transitioning into an era when this rural integrated health care delivery system will employ a completely electronic medical record.
