HIT-543 Electronic Health Records Management

Electronic health records (EHRs) capture patients' health information, such as medical history, allergies, laboratory test results, radiology images, and payment in an electronic form that enables clinicians and other providers to access and share the information across medical specialties or facilities. Electronic health records are composed of many separate systems that function together to capture, create, share, maintain, and store an accurate and complete patient health record. Students in this course will learn the various systems, applications, standards, and specifications that must be in place in order to meet the goal of true interoperability. This course prepares students to understand and use electronic records in a medical setting. It introduces students to current frameworks for the implementation and management of electronic health information using common electronic data interchange systems. Students will develop the skills and knowledge needed to address the medical, legal, sanction, and regulatory requirements of electronic health records systems.
