Relationship Enhancing E-Charting
Presented by: Sarada Panchanathan, MD, MS and Howard Silverman, MD, MS
"EHR Ergonomics" is skilled in using the Electronic Health Records (EHR) in a way that enhances the clinician-patient relationship rather than detracts from it. During this session the presenters will review the literature on this topic including a recently concluded study of the effectiveness of EHR Ergonomics instructional sessions for MS2 students at the College of Medicine -- Phoenix. Specific tips and techniques derived from this study will then be shared and discussed including techniques for relationship-enhancing EMR charting during encounters as well as situations in a patient encounter not suitable for documentation during the encounter.
- Demonstrate the ability to articulate the benefits of using the EHR.
- Address patient concerns about confidentiality of the EHR.
- Understand how to appropriately position the laptop for effective use in the patient encounter.
- Effectively integrate the EHR so the patient is actively involved in viewing & reviewing their information on the laptop.
- Discuss patient perspective on EMR charting during the encounter.
- Review techniques to allow for EMR charting during a patient encounter.
- Identify situations in a patient encounter not suitable for documentation during a patient encounter.
- List parts of the patient encounter where the EMR can be used to enhance the physician patient relationship and/or patient understanding.
Sarada Panchanathan, MD, MS and Howard Silverman, MD, MS have nothing to disclose.
About Grand Rounds
Sponsored by The University of Arizona College of Medicine at the Arizona Health Sciences Center
The Center's Grand Rounds feature speakers with experience in conventional medicine, CAM, and integrative medicine presenting topics related to the practice of IM. Many presenters are directors, faculty, or alumni of the Center, while others are experts in alternative modalities commonly recommended in integrative medical practices.
The objective of IM Grand Rounds is to discuss clinical, scientific and/or policy information related to the practice of integrative medicine and relevant protocols and/or procedures that will directly improve patient care.
Our Grand Rounds are designed as CME learning opportunities for healthcare professionals, however, members of the public are also welcome to attend.
Presentations may be viewed in person or online via streaming video. CME credit is available up to 90 days following the date of the presentation.
