Electronic Health Records (EHR)

WVSOM's dedicated team trains students on all aspects of an EHR including:

  • HPI,
  • review of systems,
  • physical exam,
  • assessment,
  • plan,
  • CPOEs,
  • ePrescribing,
  • flow sheets,
  • allergies,
  • lab results and consultations.

Students use the EHR in communication labs featuring standardized patient encounters that are conducted in a realistic clinical environment at the WVSOM CEC.

During these encounters, students demonstrate essential multi-tasking skills by managing the EHR and maintaining patient interaction.  

Students also utilize a web-based EMR during our hospital based simulations that enables them to learn how to chart electronically in hospitals.
