Class Description:

The overall objective is to give librarians an opportunity to “touch and feel” the functionality of a certified electronic health record system (EHR-S) in a “safe harbor” demonstration environment. Because many health sciences librarians are currently excluded from accessing their institutional electronic health record system (EHR-S) on an operational, day-to-day basis, this class provides that opportunity, albeit in a “practice” environment.

EHRs are crucial building blocks in the formation of an encrypted national health information network. This is a key reason why health sciences librarians continue to be engaged in important EHR supporting roles within their respective institutions with regard to planning, deployment and even optimization efforts. Now is the time to start evaluating and identifying strategies of how health sciences librarians can best contribute to the value of an EHR from a daily operations, patient care perspective.

This course will access an EHR-S via actual use in a demo environment. Through guided instruction, lecture and videos, students will create practice authentication that will enable them to access and experiment with the functionality of a certified EHR-S. Practice system exercises include dashboard components such as charting, custom texts, adding/registering a new patient, alerts/warnings, medication reconciliation, patient scheduling, meaningful use and billing. From a clinical encounter perspective, there will be sufficient “sandbox” time to enter appropriate ICD-9 diagnosis codes and/or diagnosed health conditions, treatment plans and patient education information (via NLM’s MedlinePlus Connect query process), into the clinical narrative (SOAP Note) of a fictitious patient, as a “physician user”.

Registration: Librarian’s Role in FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis)

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

On Wednesday, January 29, 2:00 to 3:00 pm, the NAHSL CE committee is sponsoring a webinar on how librarians can become involved with their hospital’s quality improvement staff in carrying out a Failure Mode and Effects Analysis. Our information- and knowledge-management skills are valuable in this process. The class will give a practical introduction to the steps of FMEA, and point out how our skills can improve specific steps.

Registration is through Wild Apricot, and MLA credit has now been confirmed. Registration fee is $15 for NAHSL members.

*********************************************************************************************

Could your library benefit from formalized structures to encourage staff to exchange a variety of skills, tools, and practices with each other?

This workshop will focus on the building blocks of Knowledge Management: those practices that, when implemented in a library environment, contribute to valued efficiencies and decision-making. We will address the complex challenges around retaining institutional memory, training and learning, and human resources functions.

Through a series of real life scenarios, experiential exercises, and much discussion, participants will discover practices to facilitate collaboration, strategies to retain organizational memory and knowledge assets, and inexpensive, user-friendly tools to readily access documents and information and to know ‘who is doing what’?

Participants can expect to leave this workshop with a roadmap for their library administration to plan and implement Knowledge Management practices that are tailored to the organization’s identified needs, objectives, and culture.
