Health care regulatory bodies are issuing deadlines regarding when patient health information and medical records must be in electronic form. Health care organizations are struggling with this requirement, including significant financial investment. Nursing assistants (NAs) are a vital part of hospital care administration. The need for NAs to use technology in the workplace is growing, but little is known about their ability to use complicated health informatics systems. Nurses and assistants who do not have basic skills to use an electronic health record (EHR) will be significantly disadvantaged as Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform (TIGER) works to achieve 100% EHR adoption by 2014.
This project evaluated hands-on computerized training provided to NAs and evaluated their feedback on lessons. NAs reported after the class that they felt more confident about their skill level on the computer and wanted more practice time. They recommended that new staff take the class.
