We regularly get asked about a few different features in our site by prospective clients so we wanted to take this opportunity to explain our philosophy at Noggin Group and why we do things the way we do.
For our third installment of Academic EHRs vs. Regular EHRs, I'd like to talk about one of the biggest differences for us at EHR Tutor between our academic EHR vs. a typical EHR designed for hospitals: ease of use. We designed our entire system as an Academic EHR specifically which meant we had instructors in mind during the entire process. During every step of the coding and design process, we were constantly asking ourselves "What would an instructor need?", "What would help nursing students". We didn't consider just hospitals, we considered classrooms first.
As an addition to our previous post on Academic Electronic Health Records (EHRs), we'd like to add another feature to consider when comparing academic EHRs to regular ones.
We've heard the question often - "What is an academic EHR?". It's often a question presented by nursing instructors or students, people who are very familiar with electronic health records and electronic medical records. However, an academic EHR is not the same as the ones you'll find in hospitals.
