The Regenstrief Teaching EMR

tEMR is a cutting-edge, educational content delivery and critical evaluation tool designed for health professionals.

Give students the experience they want.

Realistic clinical scenarios will vastly improve education in clinical informatics, health system delivery science and population health.


Easily Evaluate Student Progress

Visual dashboards measure students’ practical and critical thinking skills within the EHR and CPOE.

Electronic health records (EHRs) are widely used in healthcare settings, yet they have not been widely integrated into the curriculum at most medical schools.

That is why Regenstrief Institute worked with Indiana University School of Medicine through the American Medical Association (AMA) Accelerating Change in Medical Education initiative and then directly with the AMA to create the Regenstrief Teaching Electronic Medical Record (tEMR).

tEMR currently contains more than 12,000 real patient records — all of which have been mis- or de-identified to protect patient privacy. This allows students to gain hands-on experience with EHRs. tEMR allows them to navigate records, document encounters, place orders and complete other tasks that reproduce the feel and capabilities of a real EHR.

Incorporating tEMR in the curriculum

In 2020, students from all nine Indiana University School of Medicine campuses participated in an online course utilizing tEMR. As part of the three-day exercise, students were presented with a case scenario. Their first task was to access the patient chart to review key information about the encounter and to write an admission order. At the conclusion of day, the case was advanced to simulate care progression.

The journey to a teaching EMR


Regenstrief Institute’s journey to improve health care began in the 1970s when the experts there developed one of the first Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Systems. So this product is literally decades in the making.

Many other innovations in healthcare information technology (HIT) have been developed at Regenstrief Institute as well. The Teaching EMR platform is a branch of that original EMR system and comes with more than 40 years of experience, in addition to many other great tools. Through partnerships with Eskenazi Health and IU Health, tEMR provides schools with anonymized real patient records for clinical learning.

tEMR began in 2013 when the American Medical Association (AMA) awarded Indiana University School of Medicine and Regenstrief one of the first Accelerating Change in Medical Education (ACE) grants to develop this virtual health system using the EMR developed at Regenstrief. Since that time the partnership has ensured the growth of the platform to serve more medical and allied health professions programs.
