Electronic health records (EHRs) support healthcare professionals in their treatment of patients by providing the means to order, document, and follow up on the steps taken to care for each patient. To fulfil this function, EHRs are complex systems with numerous features and associated work processes. As a result, the implementation of EHRs in healthcare institutions is a major undertaking, which has received sustained attention in computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and other research fields. This workshop aims to provide a forum for participants to get updated on current CSCW studies of EHR implementations and create connections with a select group of researchers who study EHR implementations from a CSCW perspective. Within the overall theme of implementing EHRs, the workshop specifically focuses on the objectives, obstacles, and outcomes of such implementations. The key activities at the workshop will be presentation of the participants’ position papers and thematic group discussion.
