About the EHR Navigator

Using electronic health records properly is critical to patient safety. You can help your nursing students develop this in-demand skill and be better prepared for patient interactions, clinicals, and future careers using Paradigm’s EHR Navigator learning environment.

This interactive, Web-based program:

  • Provides students with hands-on EHR skills-training that can be utilized and strengthened within classrooms, simulations, and clinicals.
  • Replicates professional practice, preparing students for work across different types of healthcare facilities, including inpatient, outpatient, and long-term care.
  • Gives students unlimited practice in all areas of EHRs, including nursing chart notes, medication administration, and ordering.
  • Is accessible through Paradigm’s Cirrus learning management system, which can be integrated with Canvas, Blackboard, D2L, and Moodle.

The EHR Navigator is delivered through Cirrus, a cloud-based learning environment designed to elevate student success and improve instructor efficiency.

New Coverage of Data Analytics

Data analytics plays an important role in improving patient care. Yet many aspiring healthcare professionals lack opportunities to develop analysis skills until they’re on the job.

Now there’s a way to build students’ data analysis skills sooner. We’ve enhanced our courseware to provide students with opportunities to develop and test their data analysis skills.

Beginning with data related to smoking cessation—available this month—the EHR Navigator will soon include a data analytics-specific tutorial and assessment. Each data report will also be accompanied by multiple case study scenarios that challenge students to analyze and draw conclusions from the data.

Comprehensive Student Resources

The EHR Navigator supports Paradigm’s courseware, Exploring Electronic Health Records, which includes an all new nursing-specific eChapter.

This complete courseware develops students’ skills in EHRs, data management, and analytics. Student knowledge is developed and reinforced through case studies, exercises, flashcards, live assessments, and games.

Instructor Resources

Available in Cirrus, the Instructor Resources ease course management and include tools like course-planning guidelines, syllabus models, teaching hints and activities, answer keys, quizzes and exams, handouts and exams.
