Closer Connections: How one medical librarian became engaged in EMR efforts
The need for a well implemented electronic medical record system (EMR) is critical for facilitating improved patient safety, accountability, integration of systems, better communication and seamless continuity of care. Knowledge of resources, organizational skills, conformity to standards, and awareness of data structures are some of the professional attributes that medical librarians possess which can be employed outside the library’s physical and virtual walls to support EMR implementation. Aiding in document structure architecture and integrating knowledge resources are two avenues that librarians can contribute to the implementation process. This presentation will explore one librarian’s journey into the world of EMRs and the guidance and partnering she was able to foster.
