Feats of Strength: Building a Strong Case for an EHR / EMR in the Classroom

It might be challenging to get you academic medical center to open up their EHR / EMR for learning activities in the classroom. In fact, it might take a Herculean effort to make that happen for undergraduate medical students or allied health professionals that are in their first year.

That is why when Dr. Blaine Takesue and Dr. Deb Litzelman came up with the idea of building a “virtual health system” for students to use before entering clinical practice on the campus of Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) it captured the attention of the American Medical Association (AMA). The AMA granted Dr. Takesue and Dr. Litzelman the coveted Accelerating Change in Medical Education (ACE) grant back in 2013 to bring their grant proposal to life. Now […]

Sam Regenstrief had a vision. The story goes that he had a family member that was being treated in a local hospital care setting. He did not like what he saw and was determined to use his resources to make a positive change in the way we deliver health care. You see, Sam was a successful industrialist who is affectionately known as the “Dishwasher King.” Sam’s vision thrives within every research project and applied innovation that we release into the world every day here at the Institute. The infographic provided below is a small demonstration of the impact our Center for Biomedical Informatics has had the last 40+ years with great partners like Indiana University School of Medicine and Eskenazi Health (formerly Wishard). Infographic on Innovation Rich History Here are some of the highlights: Over 46 years of innovation in health care Leader in research on linking EMRs with […]
