EMR Training and Practicing

What EMR training do I need to complete?

All staff requiring access to the EMR can complete their online learning via WeLearn. Follow these simple steps to get started: 

  1. Login to WeLearn 
  2. Search EMR 
  3. From the search results, select your course according to your role/discipline:
  • BOSSnet (Digital Medical Record)
  • EMR for Access Team
  • EMR for ACE Coordinators
  • EMR for Allied Health
  • EMR for Clerical Staff
  • EMR Downtimes Procedures
  • EMR for MDM Coordinators

Note: some areas may also need to complete an existing functionality course.

The WeLearn package does not need to be completed in the one session. You can save your progress and return to it later. Once all relevant modules are completed, make sure the Final Acknowledgement box is ticked to record your achievement. 

Accessing the EMR practice environment

Practicing what has been learnt in training is immensely important to help further increase your understanding. You can access the EMR practice environment via the EMR Super Users for your area 

Further information on accessing the EMR Practice Environment is available here.

This practice environment is not linked to the EMR system that is used in everyday work, and the patients in the practice environment are test ones, not real. The system is refreshed every night, so the test patients are re-set for more practice the next day. 

The practice environment is a simulated EMR environment and may look slightly different and contain less patient information when compared to the real EMR environment.
