Use of an Academic Electronic Health Record as Simulation Training in a Problem Based Learning CurriculumOpen Source Electronic Health Record Alliance (2015)
Simulation training using an academic electronic health record (AEHR) will improve students learning outcomes through an interdisciplinary approach. Several graduate clinical programs currently utilize simulated clinical cases in a problem based learning curriculum to enhance student learning.
These cases consisted of patients with various diagnoses, across health care settings, using clinical documentation from the interdisciplinary team. Students accessed cases by navigating through the AEHR and worked in groups to identity the learning issues found in the simulated patient case. An emphasis was placed on the interdisciplinary team.
The academic EHR exposed and enhanced students’ learning of electronic documentation and inter-disciplinary care. Future plans are underway to integrate students from multiple disciplines and programs across the College of Health Professions in collective learning teams using this same approach. This plan is in direct alignment with the Federal government’s initiatives for adoption of electronic health records in the clinical setting.
