More EHR experience is valuable for students
In the News (Oct 2017): The AMA is behind training a new breed of physicians with innovative solutions like the Regenstrief teaching EHR
In a recent Modern Healthcare article, our teaching EHR platform was discussed. Hear from Dr. Bradley Allen who is leading the effort at the Indiana University School of Medicine and other innovative approaches for changing medical education today from schools like Indiana, NYU, and Penn State. Dr. Bradley states in the article, “Many of the large EHR vendors were reluctant to allow learners access into their EHR prior to them getting to the later stages of their career. We felt it was important to create a platform where they could feel free to experiment with an EHR in a non-threatening manner.” The article highlights how our platform “renames real patient data and allows students to follow treatment through each clinic visit and hospital stay. Students can become familiar with different EHR formats that they will interact with daily and figure out how to use them to coordinate care” to improve medical education for students.
A Little Abstract: Research shows meaningful experiences using EHRs should be part medical school curricula
In the recent Academic Medicine for the Journal of the Association of American Medical Colleges, the authors discuss their findings on the impact of students not having enough access to EHRs during their medical training.
Under the section in the journal article, “Innovative Models to Train Students in EHR Use” our platform was recognized. “Regenstrief Institute in association with Indiana University School of Medicine developed a virtual health care system and the Regenstrief EHR Clinical Learning Platform, a teaching EHR. Students use deidentified and misidentified patient data to practice writing orders, entering notes, reviewing data, and creating a plan of care.” Dr. Blaine Takesue was one of the co-authors on the paper.
