Virtual EHR helps residents learn complexity of elder care

From AMA Wire:

A learning tool that was developed to help medical residents gain facility with electronic health records (EHR) systems has taken on a broader application at the Indiana University (IU) School of Medicine, which first launched the tool in cooperation with the AMA and the Indianapolis-based Regenstrief Institute, an informatics and health care organization that supports IU’s medical school.

The tool, the Regenstrief -EHR Clinical Learning Platform, includes detailed information from more than 11,000 records with misidentified data—real patient information that has been altered so privacy is preserved. Using the platform, IU residents are now engaged in a project that enables them to get up to speed on EHR and to acquire a much deeper understanding of a fast-growing segment of the American population—people 85 and older—using a team-based, multidisciplinary approach.
