Theory to practice. What does that really mean? Does it mean that we tell our students about EHRs, have them write a careplan using the computer or assign a chapter on EHRs and then send out into practice and expect that they can juggle their acute patients while understanding and mastering the intricacies of the hospital EHR documentation system? Real EHRs used in practice today link together every aspect of the hospital. Nurses manage patient care, respond to doctors orders, analyze the interdisciplinary record and communicate care to the entire interdisciplinary team, all within the massive computerized system called an EHR. It’s like a hospital and clinic all accessed in their computer screen. It’s totally unlike the way we learned to practice and communicate in our nursing school education. And we need to teach our students how to master these tools and techniques with more than just theory.
This is why we created Neehr Perfect. With Neehr Perfect, we started with one of the best EHR systems in the world. The Neehr Perfect EHR is our national EHR system. It’s used by nurses in hundreds of hospitals and thousands of clinics throughout the nation and around the world.http://worldvista.org/AboutVistA U.S., Canada, Mexico, India, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and others all rely on the EHR that powers Neehr Perfect to power their hospitals and clinics. Importantly, Neehr Perfect’s EHR is a CCHIT nationally certified inpatient EHR. CCHIT Certified EHRs have been verified as having been successfully implemented and as having met meaningful use objectives in actual physician practices and hospitals. Look for CCHIT certification as a standard of whether your educational EHR is a true EHR for meaningful practice versus a “simulated” fake EHR for use as a theoretical exercise.
So we created Neehr Perfect using one of the best EHR systems in the world. But that wasn’t enough, because our students need to practice and learn nursing using this powerful EHR, but faculty need an EHR that is adaptable and suited to the educational environment (simulation, clinicals, skills and classroom). So the Neehr Perfect EHR was further designed for education with smart technolgy like the patient record Carbon Copier, the ability to fit the EHR clock to your simulation, evalation technology to empower faculty to assign, review and evaluate student work and to manage the environment your students experience in the EHR with the touch of a button.
Finally, to access Neehr Perfect, all you need is a website- no software to download, no IT burden. Students can access the EHR from any computer, anywhere, anytime.
Our responsibility to our students is to offer them the preparation necessary to become safe and effective nurses. Give them the right tools to prepare in your school. Give them Neehr Perfect.
