Webinar: An Exciting Program on Academic Electronic Health Records (EHRs)

November 19, 2014

Instruction – An Exciting Program on Academic Electronic Health Records (EHRs)

Date and Time: Wednesday, November 19, 2014, Noon to 1:00pm (EDT)

Presenters: Kathleen Annala, Co-founder of Archetype Innovations, LLC and Carolyn Schubert, Health Sciences and Nursing Librarian, James Madison University

Contact: For additional information or questions about this webinar, please contact PJ Grier at pgrier@hshsl.umaryland.edu.

Summary: Many health sciences librarians are active in an advisory capacity to faculty curriculum committees as well partners with school faculty in developing specific course content. At the same time, curriculum developers in health sciences education including medicine, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry and medical coding now recognize that health care information technology (HIT) is an important component in the educational outcomes of future clinicians. Although there are other academic electronic health records (EHRs) in the marketplace, this exciting webinar will explore two EHRs in use today by health sciences schools, colleges and universities: Neehr Perfect and Sim Chart.

Two facts make academic EHRs different than ones deployed in actual patient care are:

  1. Academic EHRs usually integrate with a college or university’s learning management system (LMS) which is an important instruction and education tool for faculty and students,
  2. Academic EHRs are not HIPAA compliant and do not require certification as delegated by the Office of the National Coordinator in the Department of Health and Human Services.

Biographical Sketch: Kathleen Annala, MA, RN, President & Chief Operating Officer, Archetype Innovations, LLC, Duluth, MN.

Kathleen Annala is the owner of Archetype Innovations, an educational technology company that designs and supports EHR systems for educational use. Kathleen began her work designing EHRs for educational use over 15 years ago at the College of St. Scholastica where she was a professor of nursing and founding member of the nation’s first project to develop an EHR that could be used as an educational tool. She taught students with an educational EHR that she helped create and has been improving upon EHRs ever since. After teaming up with Archetype Innovations to design the “perfect” educational EHR, Neehr Perfect was released in 2009.

Summary: Kathleen will discuss the key features of an educational EHR and show how faculty and students simulate clinical practice and develop EHR competencies in an academic environment using Neehr Perfect. She will also discuss ways Neehr Perfect is customized with patient scenarios, documentation forms, references, resources and training tools to give students hands on experience with the type of patients, data and point-of-care opportunities available with EHR technology in healthcare.

Biographical Sketch: Carolyn  Schubert, MLS, Health Sciences and Nursing Librarian, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA.

Carolyn Schubert teaches a course titled “Introduction to Informatics for Health Care Professionals”.  Recent publications include the book chapter “What is Biomedical Informatics? An Overview and a Case Study” in the book Curriculum-Based Library Instruction. Her research interests include biomedical informatics, educational technologies and instruction, and scholarly communication.

Summary: Carolyn will discuss her training in Sim Chart, give a short demo of some of its functionality, speak about student perspectives with some insight on the faculty’s perspective and provide an overview of how it was incorporated into the University’s nursing curriculum. She received vendor-supplied training on Sim Chart alongside Nursing faculty. She has been given access to use and evaluate the system in relation to the library’s iPad program and point-of-care resources. She also uses other systems, such as Practice Fusion when teaching students about electronic health records.

Upon completion of the Beyond the SEA Webinar, each participant will receive 1 hour of continuing education credit awarded by the Medical Library Association. Certificates will be available electronically following completion of the online survey supplied at the end of the webinar.

NCBI Webinar – November 5th

On November 5th, NCBI will have a webinar entitled “Exploring and Downloading Sequences and Annotations for Genomes and Metagenomes at the NCBI”. This presentation will introduce you to how NCBI processes genome-level data and produces annotation through the prokaryotic and eukaryotic genome annotation pipelines and show you how to access and download these data from the NCBI site.

You will learn to find, browse, and download genome-level data for your organism of interest and for environmental and organismal metagenomes using the BioProject and Assembly resources. In addition to assembled and annotated data, you will see how to retrieve and download draft whole genome shotgun and read-level next-gen sequencing data from the Nucleotide and Sequence Read Archive (SRA) databases. You will also see how to access results of precomputed analyses of genomes, as well as perform your own analyses of assembled and unassembled genomic data using NCBI’s genome BLAST and SRA-BLAST services.

See materials and video from previous webinars and descriptions of upcoming webinars on the NCBI Webinars page.

New Version of MedlinePlus Mobile

[NLM Announcement]

Today, MedlinePlus released new versions of the MedlinePlus Mobile sites in English and Spanish. The mobile site URLs are http://m.medlineplus.gov and http://m.medlineplus.gov/espanol.

Like the original versions of the mobile sites, the redesigned sites are optimized for mobile phones and tablets.  Unlike the original mobile sites that contained only a subset of the information available on MedlinePlus, the new sites have all of the content found on MedlinePlus and MedlinePlus en español.  They also have an improved design for easier use on mobile devices.

The key features of the redesigned mobile sites are:

Access to all the content available on MedlinePlus and MedlinePlus en español . Improved navigation using “Menu” and “Search” menus to access search and major areas of the sites . Enhanced page navigation with the ability to open and close sections within pages . Updated look and feel with a refreshed design

This new version of MedlinePlus Mobile is the first step in redesigning MedlinePlus and MedlinePlus en español to behave responsively.  Responsively designed Web sites automatically change their layouts to fit the screen of the device on which they are viewed, whether that is a desktop monitor or a mobile touchscreen.

In 2015, the MedlinePlus team will release a fully responsive version of MedlinePlus to provide a consistent user experience from the desktop, tablet, or phone. This will remove the need for a separate mobile site. Users will then have one destination for MedlinePlus (www.medlineplus.gov) when using any device.

Until then, try out this first offering of MedlinePlus’s responsive design on your smartphone at http://m.medlineplus.gov and http://m.medlineplus.gov/espanol. Send us your feedback and comments about the new site via the Contact Us link that appears on every page.
