Elsevier Introduces SimChart For The Medical Office, A Hands-on EHR To Teach Medical Assistant Students Electronic Documentation

PHILADELPHIA, September 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Competency-based, online simulated EHR to teach students front office, clinical care, and coding and billing skills

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the launch of SimChart for the Medical Office, a competency-based, simulated electronic health record (EHR) that gives medical assisting (MA) students hands-on practice performing front office, clinical care, coding and billing skills.

SimChart for the Medical Office allows MA students to walk through a patient visit from check-in through payment collection. Interactive assignments help prepare students for externships and certification exams, and provide employers with job-ready students.

"Employers place greater value on graduates who have experience with electronic documentation and EHRs. We created SimChart for the Medical Office so students can immerse themselves in a realistic practice setting," said John Danaher, President, Education, Elsevier. "Our product helps ensure career preparedness for medical assisting students."

SimChart for the Medical Office was developed by MA educators and practitioners, tested by students in multiple program settings at varying levels, and is designed to integrate seamlessly into an MA curriculum.

"We put the needs and expectations of practitioners at the forefront of development," said Jeanne Lawo, MSN, R.N., Clinical Manager at SLUCare, St. Louis, MO. "When hiring, I look for students who have EHR experience because prepared students reduce training time and drive cost-efficiencies for the practice." Lawo, a practice subject matter expert who served on the SimChart for the Medical Office advisory council, assists with managing St Louis University's externship program and recruits and trains medical assisting students and employees.

Elsevier textbooks enhance SimChart for Medical Office and the MA program curriculum by linking reading and learning to action. The solution offers both integrated assignments and a non-structured pathway to promote critical thinking and build student confidence. All 100 built-in assignments map back to core ABHES and CAAHEP competencies to ensure compliance with accreditation standards. The curriculum is compliant with ICD-9, ICD-10, 5010, and meets many of the Core Objectives for Ambulatory Meaningful Use.
