Studies: Students don’t get enough EHR access
Modern Physician

Researchers studying electronic health records say not enough medical schools give students permission to access EHRs.

Based on their results, the Alliance for Clinical Education concludes that medical students need more training. They found that 64% of medical-school programs allow students access, and about two-thirds of those students are allowed to write notes within the record. The results were reported in two studies that appeared in last month’s edition of “Teaching and Learning in Medicine.”
