HI 5313 Introduction to Electronic Health Records

(web-based instruction)

3 semester credit hours/meets part of basic informatics component 

Prerequisites: Consent of instructor 

This course is designed to provide informatics students with an overview of the key concepts regarding implementation of a clinically-oriented information system (e.g., an electronic medical record, computer-based provider order entry, nursing documentation system, etc.). As such we will aim to focus roughly equal amounts of time on the technical and social/political issues surrounding these systems and their implementation. The course will strive to present “best practices” in cases in which there is evidence to support such assertions.
