EHR Navigator Activities

Hands-on activities using the Web-based EHR Navigator provide you with practical experience using a realistic electronic health records (EHR) system. Each activity is an interactive tutorial designed to demonstrate an EHR concept. These activities are based on many inpatient and outpatient EHR systems and, therefore, are transferable to a variety of healthcare settings.

When you log in to the Navigator+ learning management system to launch the tutorials and complete the activities, you will be guided by audio through each step of the tutorial. The activities begin by reviewing various features and capabilities of the software. Once you have mastered the tutorials, you can apply the EHR concepts in the graded practice activities, graded assessments, and in the EHR Navigator sandbox.
