05/08/2013 - CSols Webinar - Managing Change – Ensuring Lab Informatics Solution Adoption

System Adoption means that the end-user community has fully embraced the lab informatics system and has discontinued use of their legacy applications. It is System Adoption, not system go-live, that is the true measure of project success. No matter whether you are implementing a multi-lab, multi-national or a single lab informatics solution you will need to implement a change management process to ensure the adoption of your new system.
