Needs Statement

The presence of technology has altered all of our personal interactions. The rapid adoption of electronic health records, patient portals and regulations into medical practice has required healthcare teams to implement new ways of communication, workflow and documentation. The ways in which one team position interactions with the technology are often out of sight from other positions on the team. This module aims to enhance all our interpersonal communication and shine light on how our different health team members’ technology use, influence the results for all.
