Futurists predict that camps will have compelling interests and benefits for utilizing electronic health records within the next 3-5 years. Some camps are already using electronic records and incorporating technologies in a myriad of ways to support camp healthcare. This webinar examines the use of electronic health records by exploring the opportunities and challenges for adopting this approach in the camp setting. The webinar will also provide participants with a recommended list of questions, based in part on efforts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, to ask vendors currently marketing these technologies to camps. An overarching concern with risk reduction and resource stewardship will guide the discussion. (This webinar is sponsored by Markel Insurance—ACA Mission Partner—through theHealthy Camp Education and Monitoring Program.)
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- List questions they should ask vendors about software designed to serve camp Health Center needs.
- Describe the importance of linking an electronic health form to health record-keeping and the need for various reports, including those associated with injury-illness surveillance.
- Identify the pros and cons of moving forward with technological supports for camp health services.
