The target audience for this course is the health information management professionals and Clinical Application Coordinators.
- EHR Reminders - This training will provide CACs with the skills necessary to set up and use Clinical Reminders.
- RPMS-EHR Super End User This training is performed at the facility that is in process of implementing the EHR. It occurs after the National Team has visited the facility for on-site setup and less than one month before the facility "goes live" with the EHR software. This training provides the lead "Super End Users" with 12 hours of instruction on using EHR and on instructing and mentoring other facility staff in its use. In addition, up to six two-hour overview sessions are provided for other clinical and support staff at the facility.
When determining who attends this class, facilities should remember that the "Super End User" will (a) understand that the EHR affects multiple disciplines and (b) "Super End Users" will be responsible for teaching "other end users" how to use the application (i.e. the Super End User should be able to train physicians, nurses, coders, and others on using the EHR). Individual departments are still responsible for maintaining and integrating their individual packages (lab, pharmacy, radiology, etc.) with the EHR. The Super End Users should: (a) plan on using the EHR in the near future and (b) demonstrate interest in teaching and working with others on implementing and setting up the EHR.
