Epic Clinical Informatics CLN102 (Jan 1 - Jun 30, 2020)
Statement of Need and Purpose
Clinical informaticists make key decisions during electronic health record (EHR) implementation and maintenance process, and they need to understand the implications of those decisions on clinicians and patient safety. To lead the maintenance of an electronic health record, clinical informaticists need to understand key workflows, the language to support key tools, and how to manage the health of a patient population through reports so they can effectively serve as liaisons and builders. The EHR must be designed to support team-based care.
The purpose of this training is to provide an overview of the integrated clinical health system and key functionality commonly used by clinicians. We will review the process and terminology of building a variety of integrated EpicCare tools, including areas that drive reporting.
