What is an EMR?
EMR stands for Electronic Medical Records. An estimated 80% of primary care physicians and specialists use an EMR in Canada today. Advanced use of EMRs can improve health outcomes, patient confidentiality, and patient safety through preventive care and chronic disease management.
YOUR TURN-KEY ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORDS CLASSROOM SOLUTION
The only way to ensure student proficiency is by having a custom EMR environment. Each student represents a different healthcare provider, each with their own patient list.
Our EMR Accelerator program includes 8 EMR modules. Each module has a series of assignments, tests, answer keys, support articles, and videos.
Our clients have access to extensive online learning and teaching resources including video trainings. We are also available to support you in delivering a world class education experience.
1 ) Messaging and Tasks - Internal messaging and task assigning can produce permanent notes on the medical record for the patient and assign tasks to a specific health care provider or group to be completed.
2 ) Registration - Management of patient information including address, health card, clinical notes, next of kin, insurance details, care plan and more.
3 ) Scheduling - Create and manage patient appointments, reason for appointment, billing codes, location/room, and outstanding patient related tasks. Manage cancellations, no shows, and waitlists to maximize practice revenue.
4) Billing - For every patient appointment, apply codes for completed services to be billed to public provincial healthcare or to private billing parties.
5) Documents - Review and add patient documents including reports from other providers, radiological reports, lab results, and any other incoming health data from external sources.
6) Medical Records - Medical history, diagnoses, medications, treatment plans, immunization records, allergies, radiological reports, lab results, creating and renewing prescriptions.
7) Cumulative Patient Profile - A patient profile is updated to account for factors such as: ongoing health conditions, past medical and surgical history, family history, allergies and adverse reactions, medication summary, risk factors, and medical alerts and special needs.
8) Prescriptions - The EMR tools help produce accurate prescriptions. A portal allows for direct communication with pharmacists regarding prescriptions and the sharing of relevant medical data.
The EMR Accelerator workbook is a comprehensive customized training tool containing tasks on each of the 8 modules in the software. It is used to cover important concepts related to most aspects of the Accuro Clinical Management System. The tasks take you through the day to day workings of a health administrator, giving you real to life scenarios for the patients on your provider's list so you can complete tasks such as:
At the end of the workbook, you can say your students have had industry experience and can reliably demonstrate their work on a widely used, certified Clinical Management System.
An experienced Office Administration Health Services instructor leads our team. Extensive support resources are available to students. Our goal is to make your experience teaching an EMR solution a positive one.
Video tutorials cover all modules. These are helpful for new instructors to become familiar with the software quickly. The videos are also great for students who have missed a class and need to catch up without requiring instructor's valuable time.
Students and Instructors can access the EMR database anywhere via the web app whether it's for finishing assignments or grading student's work.
