As healthcare facilities (including hospitals and private practices)continue to migrate from paper charts to electronic health records (EHR), the benefits have become obvious to both practitioners and patients. EHR data is accessible on-demand and can save the facility time and money while increasing the ability to provide quality and timely care.
EHR training for your employees, however, can be an expensive undertaking. At the same time, it can stress your users and create a significant burden on your organization’s available resources. Given this, eLearning has emerged as a cornerstone for training on all types of EHR systems, including NextGen.

The Benefits of eLearning for NextGen EHR Training
Today, many practices are turning to eLearning for the NextGen EHR training needs given the many benefits this approach can bring to the organization and your learners.
The primary reason for delivering NextGen EHR training through eLearning is to ensure that your organization is deriving the greatest possible value from your investment.

With eLearning, you eliminate the need to hire (expensive) on-site trainers. eLearning also eliminate travel costs, as well as the costs associated with printing and distributing training materials.
eLearning optimizes the learning process by allowing your users to conduct their training activities at a time and place that is most convenient for them. And with eLearning, there is no need for your users to take time away from work as they can work through their learning materials during breaks or after hours.
