The Electronic Medical Record and COVID-19 Is It Up to the Challenge

Pryor, R., Atkinson, C., Cooper, K., et al. (2020). The Electronic Medical Record and COVID-19: Is It Up to the Challenge? American Journal of Infection Control. 48(8):966-967.
The authors highlight the barriers electronic health records posed to infection preventionists during the COVID-19 pandemic (e.g., rapidly notifying COVID-19 positive patients, tracking cases tested at an outside facility, and automatic isolation orders). They emphasize the importance of being nimble in similar situations as they change frequently and encourage infection preventionists to work closely with IT staff to maximize EHR capabilities.
