An EMR vendor may conduct electronic medical records training programs for clients on site, making it easier for the abstracting patient medical charts strategy and EMR implementation.
In certain instances, a select group of office representatives may be sent to the vendor’s site for electronic medical records training.
The method of electronic medical records training may depend on the size of the client’s office. For smaller offices, it may be feasible for the entire staff to be involved in the initial complete EMR software training process.
For larger medical facilities and offices, EMR trainers will often train a select number of individuals as super-users. This method of EMR training is advantageous for reducing costs and minimizing work hours lost for the rest of the staff.
In-house EMR trainers also tend to understand the culture of their practice and its workflow environment, making them better teachers for the group. Super-users should be chosen who represent the various sectors of the medical practice so that the end users will have an EMR trainer to learn from in their own respective environment.
