From the Instructor:
I'm a Registered Nurse who has worked in a variety of healthcare settings with multiple Electronic Medical/Health Records.

This course should give you a feel for navigating, in addition to providing a foundation to discuss and learn the many concepts related to electronic medical records in healthcare delivery.

Of note: This class is ENTIRELY online, including your communication with me and between yourselves. Please review and understand the course specific requirements below, before you register. If you're comfortable with D2L and working in an online environment, I look forward to meeting and working with you (virtually)!
If you have never taken an online class, or have not worked with D2L, I strongly recommend you take PCC's Online Learning Orientation before you register for this online class.
Course Specific Requirements:
IMPORTANT: Due to technical requirements of obtaining and activating a required EHR subscription, Late Adds cannot be accepted after 8 a.m. on the first day of the term.

Also, you must be COMFORTABLE with using a computer before you take this class. You will:
  • Be working with and navigating through multiple software applications and systems (D2L and the EHR);
  • Need to be comfortable with selecting (highlighting),copying and pasting text between software applications, and using a web browser;
  • Downloading, installing and updating some browser plug-ins and software (such as Citrix, to access your EHR);
  • Saving documents and assignments on your computer, and locating them for upload to D2L.

  • You will be able subscribe to and access the academic EHR with your Mac or PC, and with most standard web browsers.

    In this course you will be using Neehr Perfect, an academic EHR. A Neehr Perfect subscription card will be available for purchase through the bookstore if you have financial aid, or online (and using your own funds, for a bit less). Info will be sent out to registered students shortly before the term starts.
    Once the term begins, you will activate your subscription, and learn to navigate, enter information into the EHR, review, extract information, and submit assignments to D2L. While there are variances between commercial electronic medical records, Neehr Perfect is based on the Veterans Administration EHR, VistA; as such, it is a good example of what is being used in practice.
