Development of the Regenstrief Teaching Electronic Medical Record (tEMR) began in 2015 by a collaboration between the Regenstrief Institute and Indiana University School of Medicine (Bloomington, IN) and funded by an innovation grant from the American Medical Association (AMA). The goal of tEMR is to offer medical students and clinical trainees the opportunity to gain real-world experience using an electronic medical record system. tEMR contains real data records of 10,000 patients of all ages whose data have been scrubbed (de-identified, mis-identified, and scrambled) to afford student the opportunity to access a real world environment where they learn to care for patients with multiple, complex health conditions. This experience mimics how they would handle dealing with real health care situations.
At UConn Health, tEMR will be used in the Case Oriented Essentials (COrE), a series of courses aimed at gradually introducing students to virtual patients embedded in tEMR to give clinical context to basic, clinical, and social science principals. tEMR will also be used in the Vertically Integrated Teams Aligned in Learning and Scholarship (VITALS) course where the students will have the opportunity to mine the system to learn about populations and social determinants of health and disparities.
