Kurt Lewin’s Change Model:
Stage 1- Unfreezing

Stage two of this process, moving, will help to get employees involved in the change and build new roles and responsibilities for them while enhancing their confidences in themselves and the company.

With the EMR implementation, new organizational structures can be built to maintain the cohesiveness between the staff and management.

  2. Personal Growth
Herzberg’s research determined factors that create job dissatisfaction such as: company and administrative policies, supervision, salary, interpersonal relations, and working conditions.   These factors need to be considered before the EMR implementation.

There are also factors that create job satisfaction such as: achievements, recognition, work itself, responsibility, and advancement. With the EMR implementation, the factors can prove to be valuable in the success of the implementation. The staff will feel appreciated and motivated to do their part in training and learning the new systems. Motivators are those things that allow for inner progression and improvement on the job. Herzberg argues that” job enrichment is required for...
