Assessing Electronic Health Record Readiness at Your Campus

As the transformation of our world by digital technology continues, it is essential that college and university programs hosting minors on campus leverage technology to improve the flow of health information and do everything in their power to reduce unnecessary risk and liability. 

Given opportunities for serious mistakes and costly mishaps when hosting minors, youth programs and camps — including those run by higher education institutions — are adopting electronic health records (EHRs) now more than ever.

University Camps Navigating Virtual Programming with Minors — Lessons Learned

Let’s begin by stating the obvious: 2020 was hard! While it was not the path any of us chose, it was the path presented to us, and we had to adapt. Some programs made the difficult decision to shut down completely for the year; others made the equally difficult decision to transition to an entirely new mode of programming — virtual. None of us can deny what we lost by not having in-person programming; however, I’d like to reflect on a few lessons learned about virtual programs.
