Health Information System Simulation. Curriculum Improvement Project. Region II.
Anderson, Beth H.; Lacobie, Kevin
This volume is one of three in a self-paced computer literacy course that gives allied health students a firm base of knowledge concerning computer usage in the hospital environment. It also develops skill in several applications software packages. This volume contains five self-paced modules that allow students to interact with a health information system simulation. The modules are for these disciplines: nursing, nuclear medicine, radiographic technology, radiation therapy, and respiratory care technology. Each module contains three parts. A student course syllabus provides this information: catalog description, prerequisites, required text, and instructional process. The student guide presents this information for each of the five units in each module: unit objectives and either discussion and assignment or instructions for using the simulation on a computer. The instructor's course syllabus consists of a module description, prerequisites, required equipment and materials, module contents, procedure, and answer keys. (YLB)
