EHR & EMR

 

Electronic health records (EHRs) are more than just a place to store and share health information. In a recent study, published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, scientists from IBM and Sutter Health developed research methods with artificial intelligence to predict heart failure with information stored in EHRs.

The American Medical Association (AMA) has announced a partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Regenstrief Institute to get a new clinical learning platform into medical schools, so students can gain experience with electronic health records (EHR) before beginning their residency. 

In an effort to incorporate electronic health record (EHR) training into medical school curricula, the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Regenstrief Institute in Indianapolis have partnered to give medical students the training needed to efficiently interact with the developing technology.
