Anatomy & Physiology of Electronic Health Record (EHR) Systems
This intensive one day short informatics course taught by a multidisciplinary team of physician-educators and informatics leaders uses a patient case approach to introduce the structure and function of electronic health records (EHR) systems and illustrates the following key health informatics concepts:
- Data acquisition, storage, and retrieval
- Electronic health information exchange (HIE)
- Clinical decision support, and
- Reporting data from EHR for quality improvement, meaningful use, performance and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)
The free, open source, ONC certified complete EHR OpenEMR system will be shown to demonstrate these important topics which are germane to all clinical informatics systems regardless of the specific EHR platform utilized.
This educational activity is designed for all physicians, clinical and translational researchers, nurses, physician assistants, clinical informatics specialists and analysts, IT staff, health services researchers, ACO administrators and other professionals interested in health informatics and health information technology (HIT).
