This project involved “geriatricizing” the EMR through the creation of geriatric templates so that it could be used to enhance geriatric education in required geriatric experiences.  The program includes geriatric templates that have been collapsed into a word document to allow interested programs the ability to adapt templates to their institutional EMR systems as well as a facilitator's guide that describes the background, rationale, description and outcome data related to the implementation of the program in a medical school curriculum.

Educational objectives: 

After utilizing the geriatric EMR templates, the learner will be able to:

  • Complete a comprehensive geriatric assessment,
  • Document critical geriatric patient information in an electronic medical record, and
  • Describe common geriatric symptoms, findings and diagnoses.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Templates must be adapted to templates in an organizational EMR system.  There may be limitations in the functionality of certain EMR systems that should be taken into account before implementing the program.  The authors described the templates as they used in them in SOAPware.
