Medical Library Association Webcast

Now’s the Time: Understanding the Electronic Health Record Maze and Health Sciences Librarians Roles

Program goals: To clarify the terminology surrounding the emerging electronic health information environment and to illustrate how and why health sciences librarians can and should become engaged with the efforts to achieve the national 2014 goal of instituting an electronic health record for each person in the United States.

Program Objectives:

  • To remove the ambiguity and confusion revolving around the electronic health environment. Technology, management, and the exchange of health information will be discussed.
  • To illustrate the emerging electronic health information environment by profiling working electronic medical records (EMRs), electronic health records (EHRs), and personal health records (PHRs).
  • To highlight the recent involvement health sciences librarians have had with EMRs, EHRs, and PHRs.
