This 20 minute webinar will discuss how you can utilize outside resources (videos, sound, etc.) from other websites or programs while working within your Electronic Health Records System to enhance the charting experience. Even when you're using a charting program, you can be pulling in the resources that you typically use without much additional work. Doing so creates a more dynamic experience both in the classroom and in the simulation lab.

We often talk about how an EHR system can be used in the classroom as well as in the Simulation Lab or after clinical rotations. However, we realized we rarely post ideas for how to do so on this blog. Sure, we've mentioned it in passing in relation to EMS/EMT programs, Vaccines, Nutrition and our recently added Polling Feature, but we've decided to do a few posts specifically with classroom and lecture ideas.

In our last post, we wrote about why using an Academic EHR during clinical rotations can be extremely useful for both students and instructors. If you've already decided that your school is going to get students charting on an Academic EHR while visiting clinical sites, we're here to give you a few concrete examples of how that can be done. First, we suggest making sure your system is web-based so students can actively chart during their visit on a tablet or computer that's available. Depending on your clinical site, they may allow students to chart on their own tablet or laptop as well. If that's not possible, students can always enter charting after their visit.
