Using the EHR for Educational Purposes

I just returned from the annual COHRI Winter Meeting which was held in Vancouver, Canada. During the meeting, I had a chance to talk to Dr. Gary Guest, Associate Dean for Patient Care, UTHSSA, Dental Clinics, San Antonio about his school’s approach for easing the transition of students from the pre-clinical to the clinical part of their education. In San Antonio, faculty attempt to use the Electronic Health Record (EHR) for distinct educational purposes in the simulation as well as in the patient care environment. Please watch the interview for a detailed description:
