Incorporating an EHR into CNA Programs
Instructors can all agree that hours are tight with CNA Programs. You've got just 2-3 months to get your students prepared and out the door. It can be tricky to try and squeeze in simulation, but trust us, it's worth it.
Benefits of using a Simulated EHR
Simulated Electronic Health Records (EHRs) can be a valuable tool for CNA Programs looking to better prepare students for the clinical setting. These systems are also often called Educational or Academic EHRs.
One of the benefits of using simulated EHRs is that students can review case studies and practice documentation outside of the classroom. This can be particularly helpful for students with busy schedules, as they can work at their own pace and review material as needed. In addition, simulated EHRs can provide a safe and controlled environment for students to practice skills such as taking vital signs and documenting Activities of Daily Living.
Adopting and incorporating a simulated EHR has been difficult in the past. Due to cost, lack of space in the curriculum, or a multitude of other factors, we’ve seen many programs opt to each students only the most critical skills and hope they'll figure out the rest once they're in a clinical setting. Information they’ll “learn on the job.”
At ChartFlow, we think simulation is the way to go. That's why we've built a platform that can be used to quickly and easily incorporate simulation into CNA Programs.
How to use ChartFlow EHR
Students can use ChartFlow in a number of ways, including:
- Homework assignments to review case studies.
- Skills documentation practice.
- Clinical documentation practice, including Activities of Daily Living, Vital Signs, and Intake & Output.
- During lectures, instructors can quickly display a patient's chart to help visualize the plan of care and improve patient outcomes (while also impressing their students with their tech skills, using a modern & sleek platform → we may be biased about that last bit, but we think you’ll agree!)
ChartFlow Free Trial
Overall, simulated EHRs can be a valuable addition to CNA Programs, providing students with the opportunity to practice skills and documentation in a simulated environment and better prepare for the clinical setting.
By using ChartFlow's platform, instructors can easily incorporate simulation into their curriculum and improve the education of their students (all while saving time and frustration).
