Advancing the Implementation of Electronic Records in Athletic Training
1.00 BOC Approved Clinical Home Study EBP CEU's
COST: $ 29.99 - EXPIRATION DATE: 2019-12-31
The current professional degree education competencies in athletic training delineate that athletic trainers be able to “identify and explain the statutes that regulate the privacy and security of medical records”, but do not address federal regulation of health information technologies used in clinical practice. Since the HITECH Act of 2009,
health information technology has been revolutionizing clinical practice and medico-legal record-keeping throughout healthcare. A recent investigation found that only 8.1% of final-year athletic training students reported having formal education on the HITECH Act of 2009. Certified athletic trainers may possess a similar lack of awareness regarding this critical piece of federal legislation. Athletic trainers in many employment
settings do not have access to health information management professionals and may be left to make electronic health record decisions with minimal understanding of legal requirements, health information exchange capabilities, and industry standards. Therefore it is necessary to address the gap in athletic trainers’ knowledge on electronic health record technology, and the implications of such technologies in clinical practice and towards furthering evidence-based research. In order to have valid and accurate outcomes data organized and stored in a retrievable and searchable manner for future analysis, athletic trainers need to adopt best practices in their implementation of electronic health records. An overview of the types of electronic health record technologies, their certification process through the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, how the capacity for health information exchange affects athletic trainers’ clinical practice, and a vision for the use of electronic health records data sets in athletic training outcomes research will be provided.
1. Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of injury tracking tools, electronic medical records (EMRs), electronic health records (EHRs), personal health records (PHRs), and patient portals
2. Define interoperability and health information exchange as it relates to electronic health record technologies
3. Summarize the implications of the HITECH Act of 2009, including the Common Meaningful Use Data Set and Health Information Exchange (HIE), for the profession of athletic training
4. Detail the federal government’s process for certification of health information technology products and use the HealthIT.gov certified product listing when selecting EHR technologies
5. Formulate appropriate questions for EHR vendors when selecting an electronic records system for clinical use
6. Identify potential improvements in the efficiency of patient care through the use of certified EHR technologies and health information exchange
7. Discuss how EHRs can increase the use of patient-related outcomes measures in clinical practice
8. Consider how documentation in electronic records will serve as data sets for future outcomes research in athletic training.
