On July 1, my agency, along with all the other State-run Human Service Centers and the State Hospital are switching to a new electronic record system. It is totally different than our current system, which we have had for about 15 years. There is anxiety and uncertainty leading up to the start date, especially since many aspects of the system are still being developed. It will be a good change and will reduce some paperwork demands.
Change is hard, though, especially for people who pride themselves on doing things correctly the first time. We have to accept we will do things wrong for a while until we master the system. Some of my colleagues are panicking. Some are just resigned to the inevitable chaos. I just want it to start so we can get a new normal.
What changes are hard for you? What have been some big changes in your life?
