A Powerful EHR, Tailor-Made for Education
MedAffinity is has the power of a clinical EHR but is specially adapted for the educational environment. We became a federally certified EHR in 2012. In 2014 we began working with Tallahassee Community College to adapt our EHR for academic uses while retaining all the functionality required for a medical practice, and we haven't stopped perfecting it since.
Flexibility to Use Your Own Scenarios
MedAffinity’s flexible template builder lets you use the simulation scenarios you already have. You can even change scenarios in real time during class. We’ll teach you to use straightforward tools for importing your scenarios into the MedAffinity system and customizing the progress notes and other elements as your instructors prefer.
Adaptable to New Techniques and Faculty Experiences
Your educational EHR needs to be able to adapt to the constantly-evolving medical field and to the experiences your instructors bring to the classroom and the sim unit. With MedAffinity EHR, instructors can adapt wording and modify templates, rearrange the chart summary to emphasize specific aspects of the patient chart, and more. With MedAffinity EHR, it is easy and efficient for instructors to make adjustments themselves without the need to pay for custom programming.
Allows Instructors to Choose How Students Enter Data
Our templates for documentation come with menus of choices. But if you want students to perform an examination or diagnosis or management without prompting from a menu, it is easy to eliminate the menus and allow for free-typing in each category or even on a blank page.
Expands Beyond the Sim Environment to Classroom Case Studies and Informatics
MedAffinity goes beyond the sim environment to include classroom case studies and informatics. Almost anything you can think of as practical training for your students, MedAffinity can create it or teach you to do it yourself. MedAffinity's system includes family and social history, checklists for surgery or other procedures, orders, counseling notes for case managers, alerts, narrative charting, multidisciplinary pathways to documentation, and more!
Tools for Instructors to Easily Reset Sim Scenarios for the Next Class
Instructors love our “Back to Start” feature, which lets them quickly reset simulations without manual item-by-item deletion. Just one click is all it takes. Instructors can easily adapt our templates to new scenarios or states and new curriculum needs without delays or costly upgrades. Multiple orders and other groupings of data are fast and easy.
User-Friendly Design to Minimize Student Training
Students and faculty love our one-screen entry of data combining the narrative progress note with the Tap-to-Select menu. Instructors report that new students learn the MedAffinity system in about 15 minutes, so the training is minimal. The one-screen charting and prebuilt staged templates let users enter large amounts of patient information at one time, such as multiple orders.
Barcode Scanning of Patient ID and Drug Labels
A barcode-enabled electronic Medical Administration Record (eMAR) is built into the Patient Chart. The eMAR can use the sim drugs you already have, including Demo-Dose, Practi-Meds, or your own. Standard, inexpensive barcode readers work with our system.
