The Lippincott Williams & Wilkins unit of Wolters Kluwer Health has introduced an educational electronic health records system for use in nursing schools.

The University of Tennessee-Knoxville helped develop the Web-based EHR. “Relying on the limited exposure to EHR technology that nursing students get during their clinical experiences is just not enough,” Tami Wyatt, R.N., associate nursing professor, notes in a statement. “When EHR technology is integrated into multiple courses across the nursing curricula, there is continuity in learning and students begin not just using, but relying on EHRs as tools to gather data and anticipate patient care.”

The EHR, called DocuCare, includes more than 70 pre-populated simulated patient records and cases to hone documentation skills, according to the vendor. It offers relevant links from each case to Lippincott nursing content, including diagnoses, descriptions and videos of skills and procedures, and drug monographs, among other content.
