This is the complete “learn by doing” text for every nurse and nursing student who must use an electronic health records system. In support of federal mandates and the profession’s commitment to transition to EHR systems, this book thoroughly explains both EHR tasks and functional benefits, integrating EHR history, theory, and benefits with hands-on opportunities to experience actual EHR environments. Reflecting current EHR rules, regulations, and innovations, it contains comprehensive guided and critical thinking exercises utilizing actual EHR software, standardized EHR nomenclature, and the six-step Nursing Process Standard of Care. To gain a firm foundation of understanding, students apply EHR in inpatient and outpatient nursing, home care, nursing home, pediatric, hypertension clinic, and other practice settings. This text also contains a full chapter on electronic nursing care plans.
