Electronic Health Records, a foundational course in Health Information Management or Health Information Technology programs is the next "big thing" in medical technology. It coordinates exam notes, the diagnosis, the insurance billing and coding, and any procedures for each patient's medical records. Gartee's, first of its kind, "how to" text is designed to train future users of EHR programs. It is written for the clerk, the Medical Records Technician, the general administrative Medical Assistant, the Medical Biller, the Insurance Coordinator and others in the operational level. It contains screen shots, exercises and activities to help students learn how an Electronic Health Records system works and how it serves as a "coordinator" of the different facets of patient medical administration. Gartee differs from all other publications, in that they discuss EHR's as they relate only to managers, planners, and top administrators in Hospitals.
