Date:2/7/2008

Text Comes With Software that Provides Hands-on Learning

NEW YORK, Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Immediate access to a patient's medical records is essential to quality medical care and can mean the difference between the life and death of a patient. Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, used by physicians' offices in ambulatory care settings, make patient history readily available in those critical moments. McGraw-Hill Higher Education has published a new textbook, Hamilton/Electronic Health Records, to educate medical personnel on these revolutionary systems. As part of this initiative, McGraw-Hill has partnered with Spring Medical Systems, the creator of the SpringCharts(R) EHR system, to provide fully functional demo software to all students, offering a unique hands-on patient care learning experience.

"We are thrilled to offer Hamilton/Electronic Health Records, with the accompanying SpringCharts software -- a comprehensive learning package for the medical community," commented Jim Kelly, president, McGraw-Hill Career Education Group. "EHRs are an innovative improvement in health care information systems, and this new content will enable ambulatory and medical care professionals to understand and use this technology to its fullest potential."

Hamilton/Electronic Health Records, by Byron and Leesa Hamilton of the Med-Soft National Training Institute, provides theoretical content and introductory software, as well as an advanced training program and illustrated training details, such as visual screen captures and menu icons from the SpringCharts EHR software included in the package. Certificates of completion of the training program are available through McGraw-Hill Higher Education's Online Learning Center. The textbook content also correlates with the certification criteria of the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT).
