Using Simulation Training to Speed EHR Adoption

6:00pm - 7:00pm Tuesday, March 6
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Murano 3304

Description

Successful EHR implementation hinges on several factors with user training in the top rank. Classroom training, while standard, is perceived as high cost and low value by many medical professionals. While time in the classroom is a component of an overall learning strategy, simulation training is playing an increasing role in higher medical education. MD Anderson, faced with a single go-live to launch our EHR, used simulation training to augment classroom work. We created a simulation environment for our physician faculty, advanced practice providers and fellows. We used simulation to augment classroom instruction for over 2000 providers. This approach was well accepted by our faculty and in post go-live evaluation was seen as an extremely valuable experience. This session will include specific examples of the how this training platform can be used at scale to deliver an enhanced training experience and actionable insight into provider preparation.
