Our journey as an Institute to improve health care began in the 1970’s when we developed one of the first Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Systems. So, we have literally been doing this for decades.
Many other innovations in healthcare information technology (HIT) have been developed here at the Regenstrief Institute as well. Visit Regenstrief.org to learn more.
Our EHR Clinical Learning Platform is a branch of that original EMR system and comes with over 40 years of experience–in addition to many other great tools to promote learning we’d love to talk with you about. Through our partnerships with Eskenazi Health and IU Health, we are able to provide schools with anonymized real patient records for clinical learning starting on day one.
The EHR Clinical Learning Platform began in 2013 as the Teaching EMR when the American Medical Association (AMA) award Indiana University School of Medicine and Regenstrief faculty investigators Dr. Blaine Takesue, Dr. Deb Litzelman, and Dr. William Tierney (now at Dell Medical School) one of the first Accelerating Change in Medical Education (ACE) grants to develop our virtual health system using the EMR developed at Regenstrief. Since that time we have formed a collaboration with the AMA to ensure that we are able to grow the platform to serve more Medical and Allied Health Professions programs.
Right now, thousands of students and educators are using our clinical learning platform within their curricula. We are helping to reshape the Medical and Allied Health Professions Education programs of the future, but we can’t do it without you.
