Remote Learning Using Electronic Health Record Simulations during COVID-19 - June 18
In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, institutions have quickly adapted their training environments to provide learners with remote educational opportunities. This webinar will feature Oregon Health and Science University’s application of simulation technology to train medical students in using electronic health records. Jeffrey A. Gold, MD, will highlight findings from this program and will describe the benefits, challenges, and lessons learned for providing this type of remote engagement for students.
Jeffrey A. Gold, MD
Professor of Medicine
Chief, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care (Interim)
Associate Director, Adult Cystic Fibrosis Center
Oregon Health and Science University
Dr. Gold began his training and career in New York, going to NYU Medical School then Columbia Presbyterian for residency and then back to NYU for fellowship in Pulmonary Critical Care. After completing fellowship Dr. Gold joined the faculty at NYU as a translational researcher in sepsis and septic shock. While serving in the role, Dr. Gold also served as Director for Critical Care services for Bellevue hospital. Dr. Gold was recruited to OHSU in 2005 where he received a number of grants focus on the host immune response in sepsis, pneumonia and cystic fibrosis.
In 2011, Dr. Gold’s research focus shifted toward understanding the usability of Electronic Health Records (EHR) in the ICU, specifically focused on the ability to use simulated patient charts to create high-fidelity EHR training exercises as well as provide a test bed to objectively assess usability of the EHR. This infrastructure has led to a number of publications and Dr. Gold has received grants from AHRQ to conduct this research. Recently, Dr. Gold has expanded this work to include understanding how all member of the interprofessional team (nurses, pharmacists, physicians, etc.) interact with the EHR during ICU rounds. This work has expanded to use of EHR based simulation for training of medical scribes and now to understand the role the EHR plays in the genesis of diagnostic error in ambulatory care.
Dr. Gold currently is a Professor of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University. He has held numerous administrative positions including program director for OHSUs Pulmonary Critical Care and Critical Care fellowships (2010-2017) and Director of Simulation for OHSU (2012-2018). He is an active member of ATS and Section of Medical Education and currently serves as Interim Chief of the Division of Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine with a joint appointment in the Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology. In 2020 he was appointed Vice Chair for Quality and Safety for the Department of Medicine.
