We have recently found out that we will be using PowerChart (a Cerner Product) as our EMR.

What if any experience does the group have with the product?

Specifically are there pediatric templates that are useful or was there a need to build from scratch?

For those with experience with the product what have you found most difficult as I prepare to work on the implementation?

Any experience with using Mobile work stations (computers on wheels, tablets, pads, etc.)?

For background we see about 70K a year, each attending has a work station (PC, keyboard, mouse), and cover multiple areas in the ED (we are away from the work station a lot).

Feel free to reply directly to me if you want.

Thanks for all of your help,
