EMR in the Classroom

Giving Thanks: Appreciating Medical and Allied Health Professions Educators


Regenstrief Appreciates Medical and Allied Health Professions Educators

Thank you for everything you do to improve Medical and Allied Health Professions Education! During this season of Thanksgiving, my team and I at the Regenstrief Institute’s Center for Biomedical Informatics want to express our deepest gratitude to you for your contributions in educating students.

Thanks to you and your students, our health and the delivery of health care is getting better every day!

Happy Holidays!

First Class

In 2013, the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) began a pilgrimage with our team at Regenstrief to develop an EMR learning platform for students and educators. Last Fall, the first class of medical students started using our learning EHR / EMR in their classrooms.

Several other medical schools and allied health professions programs have begun using our EHR / EMR in the classroom with their students, thanks to educators and administrators like you.

We are blessed by the several thousand students who will be joining the students and educators already using the application our non-profit built to improve education in 2017.

Curriculum development does not need to be tedious or time-consuming using an EHR / EMR in the classroom. We worked with great partners to make available the largest anonymized patient database available for learning for:

  • Clinical concepts
  • Case Presentations
  • Process Exercises
  • Interprofessional Education
  • Population Health
…and SO much more.

Seasons of Change

The Regenstrief EHR Clinical Learning Platform (formerly the Teaching EMR) has grown out of its humble beginnings as an idea for a “virtual health system” project for the AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education (ACE) Grant and has blossomed into an applied innovation that we are disseminating to Medical and Allied Health Profession Programs and more for learning and research. Our growth and accomplishments in improving education would not be possible without the support of the Regenstrief Foundation, Eskenazi Health, IU Health, Indiana University School of Medicine, the American Medical Association, and especially your support and contributions developing future providers and improving health system science.

Our friends at the American Medical Association, Susan Skochelak, MD, MPH and Richard (Rich) Hawkins, MD, FACP, have written an excellent textbook on Health System Science. We recommend you order a copy of the book for your program’s curriculum. We are seeing seasons of change in education for Medical and Allied Health Professions programs using technology-enhanced learning solutions like the Regenstrief EHR Clinical Learning Platform (formerly the Teaching EMR) that are preparing providers for practice. Be part of the change with us!
