Summary

Technology is changing the qualifications required to perform both clinical and administrative allied health duties. Students entering the job market today must be familiar with the ways in which technology is used to perform on-the-job tasks. In particular, the understanding of electronic health records is essential. This text integrates the presentation of concepts with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with an EHR software package. The subject matter is presented in a logical order, proceeding from introductory material to coverage of specific features and functions of EHRs. After describing the need for EHRs, the text explains the basic purpose and content of an EHR system. With that knowledge in place, the subject moves to the topic of the information technology used in EHR systems. The need to ensure the privacy and security of the information in an EHR is emphasized.
