We think your faculty and administrators, not your EHR, should decide what and how your students learn. We understand that educational simulation environments have a different set of needs than live hospitals, which is why we've carefully tailored MedAffinity EHR to empower instructors and solve problems specific to the simulation environment — without compromising the student experience of using a real-world EHR.
The MedAffinity EHR interface is designed to look, act, and feel like a real document. But behind the scenes, data is captured with every click. Configure MedAffinity to meet the needs of your faculty by placing their existing document-style materials right into our system. MedAffinity adapts to new curriculum content, ideas, and standards, which means our EHR does not dictate the way your faculty teach.
The MedAffinity Summary allows students to dive right into learning by making it easy to view the information they need to see. Students do not need to waste time aimlessly searching for information—our effortless summary system allows students to quick select summary boxes to rapidly fill out their charts, or roll their mouse over documents in the chart to instantly view any particular item in full detail.
MedAffinity EHR features robust documentation retrieval and search functions, allowing faculty to quickly and efficiently review documentation authored by students. MedAffinity also gives faculty powerful search tools to easily find documents authored within specific date ranges in a particular course, authored by a particular student, or containing particular criteria.
MedAffinity has all the power of a clinical EHR, specially adapted for education. 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.
LIVE SCENARIO EDITING
With Medaffinity, your faculty aren't limited to static scenarios. MedAffinity's powerful scenario editor allows instructors to dynamically modify scenarios in real-time during class. And with our “Back to Start” feature, instructors can quickly and efficiently reset a scenario for the next class, no manual deletion required.
ADAPTS TO YOUR NEEDS
With MedAffinity, instructors can adapt wording and modify templates, rearrange the chart summary to emphasize specific aspects of the patient chart, and more. MedAffinity, instructors can make scenario adjustments themselves, eliminating the need to spend time and money on custom programming or support calls.
We've combined the strengths of a word processor with effortless Tap-to-Select Menu. Our single-screen charting interface and prebuilt staged templates let users enter large amounts of patient quickly and inefficiently. Indeed, Instructors report that new students learn the MedAffinity system in about 15 minutes.
EMAR BARCODE SCANNING
A barcode-enabled electronic Medical Administration Record (eMAR) is built right into the Patient Chart. The eMAR can use the sim drugs you already have, including Demo-Dose, Practi-Meds, or your own. There's no need for specialized readers; standard, inexpensive barcode readers work with our system.
There's no need to start from scratch; MedAffinity’s flexible template builder lets you use the simulation scenarios you already have. We’ll teach you to use straightforward tools for importing your scenarios into the MedAffinity system and customize the progress notes and other elements as your instructors prefer.
The rapidly expanding field of Health Informatics is transforming the work of health professionals everywhere. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, growth in the health information technology sector is projected to roughly double the average growth rate across all occupations in the U.S. EHRs and related systems, as the backbone of institutions' data management, are therefore increasingly integral components of healthcare education. MedAffinity EHR is the ideal platform for educational institutions get ahead of the game and best prepare students for the digital future.
At MedAffinity, we believe educational institutions should not be forced to settle for the rigid, stripped-down tools provided by larger, one-size-fits-all EHRs for teaching Informatics. We believe these stripped-down EHRs create unnecessary headaches for administrations and ill prepare students for real-world medical care. Choosing MedAffinity gives you have custom, yet easy-to-use methods for ensuring that every student graduates with a clear understanding of Health Informatics.
We've designed MedAffinity EHR for Education to incorporate the power of in-practice clinical EHRs, coupled with the flexibility and adaptability demanded by top educational institutions. We believe an EHR that can evolve alongside your Informatics curriculum is a practical necessity in teaching students how to truly integrate health information into better, more efficient patient care.
MedAffinity EHR for Education leapfrogs competitors in providing flexible, faculty-defined tools and scenarios for teaching Health Informatics. Our system adapts to your style, importing scenarios from any source and allowing instructors to build unlimited templates for data and progress notes, customized to whatever unique experiences they wish to craft for their students. MedAffinity EHR's lean, yet powerful, interface allows students and instructors to focus on patient care, rather than fumbling over data management.
