A Health Informatics Short Course entitled:

Anatomy & Physiology of Electronic Health Record (EHR) Systems

Presented by the Center for Quantitative Medicine & CICATS Division of Biomedical Informatics

An intensive one day short course taught by a multidisciplinary team of physician-educators and informatics leaders uses a patient case approach to introduce the structure and function of electronic health records (EHR) systems and illustrates these key health informatics concepts: 1) data acquisition, storage, and retrieval, 2) electronic health information exchange (HIE), 3) clinical decision support, and 4) reporting EHR data for quality improvement, meaningful use, performance and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). An ONC certified complete EHR system will be shown to demonstrate these important topics.
