Educator: Nurses harder to train on EMR systems than clinicians

In a recent interview with, Marcus Pantalion, a Senior Analyst/Implementation educator at Houston-based Memorial Hermann Healthcare who teaches providers how to use electronic medical records, said that nurses are harder to train on EHRs than clinicians. "During training, they are very perceptive, wanting to know the 'how and why' of EMR features, not just sitting back and 'enjoying the show,'" he said. He added, however, that such perceptiveness has led to helpful feedback regarding his training content. "To me, nurses are important to EMRs because they have a 'patient first' mentality," Pantalion said. Interview
