When to Implement
The size and complexity of your organization and the capacity of your staff to learn new software will influence how quickly you can implement HIFIS.
Large, 24/7 operations frequently introduce HIFIS on the night shift because it is generally quieter. The HIFIS 3 Training Centre makes this easier by making training available 24/7. Other organizations find it easier to implement HIFIS during the day when the administrator is available to make decisions and provide guidance and when other resources are available, such as the local Community Coordinator and the HIFIS Support Desk.
After you have chosen the HIFIS functions you want to implement, you may decide to implement everything at once, or only implement the essential features and implement others at a later date. The advantages of implementing everything at once are that you do not have to maintain a second set of records, and your records will be complete in the future. One disadvantage may be that implementation of too many functions at once requires more planning and may be overwhelming. One thing to consider is that records can be manually entered into HIFIS later.
