The importance of interprofessional educational EHR training in nursing programs

Collaborative use of electronic health records (EHRs) is becoming the norm across most patient care facilities, making it increasingly critical for healthcare students to have effective, interprofessional EHR training before entering the workforce. It’s important for nurses to feel comfortable learning about, from, and with students from other disciplines to improve health outcomes for patients. Interprofessional education EHR’s like Lippincott DocuCare offer students the opportunity to get real-life documentation training in a safe and managed environment, making them better practitioners and patient caregivers. Graduating nurses are expected to be able to communicate effectively with colleagues and possess an understanding of common workplace technologies.

Integrating DocuCare: The benefits of an effective interprofessional EHR

Implementing DocuCare as your interprofessional educational EHR solution brings a multitude of benefits for you and your students. Benefits for your students include improved communication, increased proficiency and comfort with health record technology, as well as invaluable experience working with professionals of different disciplines—regardless of their location. As a nursing educator, all of the patient records and other related paperwork your nursing students may need to accomplish are stored digitally within the EHR. That means little to no paperwork and files for you. Interprofessional EHR technology like Lippincott DocuCare offers nursing instructors the ability to customize patient scenarios, on top of the already existing 200+ nursing simulation scenarios within the platform. It’s a win-win for everyone. It’s an easier workload for you to manage, and students receive a more enjoyable and memorable learning experience that more closely imitates real, workplace scenarios.
