For use in courses on Medical Assisting and as an adjunct to Health Information Technology and Management courses which must cover electronic health records but require a briefer version of the full course offered in Gartee, Electronic Health Records, 2/E.

This is a concise “learn by doing” text for everyone who must use an electronic health records system, including medical assistants, and other medical office staff. It provides a basic understanding of EHR tasks and functional benefits that is continuously reinforced by actual EHR experiences. Reflecting the latest EHR rules, regulations, and innovations, it contains over 40 hands-on guided and critical thinking exercises utilizing actual EHR software. This “essentials” guide focuses on core tasks, including using search and prompt, lists, forms, coding, and reimbursements. It concludes with a comprehensive student evaluation comprising a written exam and hands-on critical thinking exercises using both EHR software and the Internet.
