1. Based on only what we read in the case, has IS organization at PHS applied its CIO’s ideas in implementing the EMR/CPOE systems?

Yes, they were very successful.

1. The history of implementation of EMR in some hospitals that eventually merged into the PHS extends all the way back to the late 1970s. This may explain why they implemented homegrown (or in-house developed) systems. What may be problems with this approach? What may be an alternative method?

Using homegrown systems could prevent the use of commercial systems. An alternate method could be using a customized commercial system.

Yes, because other affiliates were implemented into the system. Also, new researching findings resulted of it.
