EHR Tutor, an easy-to-use electronic health records system, will be available to package with all F.A. Davis texts.
Philadelphia, PA, April 13, 2016: F.A. Davis is pleased to announce a partnership with Noggin, LLC to resell its electronic health records system, EHR Tutor. EHR Tutor can be packaged with any F.A. Davis text to provide an easy-to-use, flexible, and affordable solution for teaching electronic charting across the nursing curriculum.
EHR Tutor is a web-based program accessible from a computer, tablet, or mobile device. It creates a real-world, in-depth charting experience for students in class, in the simulation lab, or in clinical. Designed to meet the needs of any nursing program, it can complement one course or an entire nursing program.
Instructors are able to select patients from a library of pre-built patient charts that represent the variety of diagnoses students will encounter in both in-patient and out-patient settings. Or, they can customize charts to meet their specific needs. They can also create new charts from scratch. EHR Tutor enables instructors to easily monitor their students’ progress through assignments, comment on their work, and grade the results. Realistic barcode scanning functionality even enables students to record patient medications.
“We are delighted to be able to offer EHR Tutor to our customers,” said Jean Rodenberger, Editor-in-Chief, Nursing for F.A. Davis. “The rapid changeover from paper to electronic records makes it absolutely essential that today’s students are able to integrate this new technology into all aspects of patient care. Packaging EHR Tutor with our texts enables us to help students learn these new skills.”
“From the very beginning of the product development process, we focused on creating an EHR charting solution that was not only extremely affordable, but also incredibly easy to navigate,” said Diane Yeager, founder of EHR Tutor. “As any instructor knows, if a software program is difficult to operate, it will be impossible to get faculty buy-in. Because of that, we've designed a system that is so intuitive for both instructors and students that it can be used the same day of training.”

About EHR Tutor
EHR Tutor was originally created by Diane Yeager, RN, who was a Nurse Educator for 16 years. Diane has always been an advocate for the use of technology in education and created the website FreeNurseTutor.com while working as an Instructor. When she started to explore the current Electronic Health Record Systems available for Nursing and Allied Health schools, she realized there were no truly affordable, user-friendly programs on the market that were flexible enough to fit the needs of different programs and teaching styles. From that problem, a solution was born: EHR Tutor.
