With many physicians converting their practices over to electronic medical records, the Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) Management course enables the student to explore all aspects of EMR software using Wolf Medical Systems. The student will implement, use and become familiar with EMRs. Through lectures, exercises and hands-on practical experience, both from an administrative and clinical perspective, the student will navigate EMRs and manage the input and retrieval of electronic data. This course is a required component of the MOA program, however it may be taken on its own by former MOA graduates and other interested healthcare workers.
