An EHR Designed for Teaching and Learning
Learn about the new teaching tool that has emerged from the collaboration of the AMA and the Regenstrief Institute to ensure more medical students and medical trainees gain real-world experience using EHRs during their training. Developed by Indiana University School of Medicine and the Regenstrief Institute as part of the AMA’s initiative to create the medical schools of the future, the AMA and Regenstrief are now working together to disseminate the newly enhanced Regenstrief EHR Clinical Learning Platform to medical schools across the country.
This first-of-its kind platform uses real, de- and mis-identified patient data to safely allow students to virtually care for patients with multiple, complex health conditions by navigating records, documenting encounters and placing orders within an application that is similar to the EHRs they will use in practice. It also provides an immersive and cutting-edge way for medical educators to teach students how EHRs can be used to address important issues pertaining to population health, quality improvement, patient safety and social determinants of health.
