Introduction to Electronic Health Record (EHR) Software
In this unit, you were introduced to functional EHR systems and began practicing using EHR software. For this assignment, you will complete an exercise using the Quippe software in the MyHealthProfessionsLab located in Blackboard, and then you will compose a reflection paper that details your experience.
First, use the instructions for “Exercise 3G: Another Cause of a Headache” on page 118 of your textbook to complete this exercise in the MyHealthProfessionsLab. Note: You do not have to complete Step 4 because you are not actually submitting the exercise itself.
After completing the exercise, write a reflection paper about your experience that applies what you have learned in this unit. In your reflection paper, be sure to include the following:
How was your overall experience using the software to document the patient encounter? Did you experience any issues while using the software?
Differentiate between the features and structure of Medcin software (used in this exercise) and SNOMED-CT. Which nomenclature do you feel would better serve patients?
Who owns the patient data entered into the EHR? What are your thoughts on this?
Discuss the strengths and limitations of different health information exchange organizations and methods.
Explain ICD-10-CM and CPT-4. How are these codes used in billing?
Describe how this exercise will affect or influence your future learning. What will you do differently next time? What worked well?
Your reflection paper must be at least two pages in length You are not required to use any outside resources, but if you choose to incorporate information from outside resources, including your textbook, you must cite and reference them in APA format.
