Goals & Objectives

Brief Summary of Case:

EMR-sim is a computer-based (‘virtual patient’) simulation to teach clinicians on the challenges of using electronic medical records (EMRs) in the patient-clinician encounter. The scenarios for this project were designed on the basis of a literature review and a research study of the impact of EMRs on the clinical encounter and the strategies and best practices developed by clinicians to overcome the negative impacts and maximize the benefits of using the EMR. The simulation was pilot tested with Family Medicine residents at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto with promising results. The project was funded by SIM-one Research and Innovation grant. Two prototype virtual patient cases are shared under Creative Commons (attribution- non-for-profit- share alike) license.

 

Other Competencies:

Patient-clinician communication in computerized settings
