Healthcare Provider Training
Animated video training primary care clinicians
on the effective use of EHRs at the point of care.
Improving patient-clinician communication around the use of the electronic health record (EHR) during patient encounters is a critical part of improving the use of EHRs at the point of care. Faculty at the University of Michigan are piloting an EHR-tailored, theoretically informed, and empirically validated communication training strategy for providers, with the goal of improving understanding of the impact of such training on patient health outcomes. The project is focused around expanding the evidence-based Physician Asthma Care Education (PACE) program to make it a suitable tool for training primary care clinicians on the effective use of EHRs at the point of care.
HOW WE HELPED
The Honey Locust team led the creative development and production of a short animated narrative video addressing communication strategies clinicians should consider while using the EHR during the clinical encounter. Honey Locust developed a creative concept, original scripts, storyboards, and an animated video around the concept of “The EHR Zone”. The video is integrated into the pilot randomized controlled trial.
