​We have an academic EHR we use.  It is a partnership between The University of Kansas Health System and the University of Kansas Medical Center.  It is actually a copy of our Epic production environment with patients designed for the needs of the courses, simulation and health system training.  We are working towards making it a fully interfaced environment to make our simulations as close to "real life" as possible.

Elizabeth, this is extremely interesting.  Do you know if there was a cost to the University for using the copy?  Or did they have to get permission from Epic?  I want to explore this option for my new role! :-)

​It is a joint venture between the health system and the university.  The health system became a public authority (separated from the state) back in 1998 so we are truly separate but we primarily reside on the same campus so we often share a lot of resources.  The university and the health system co-fund the resource who is primarily responsible for managing the EHR.  I would be happy to set up some time to discuss this further and pull in Lauren who is the one primarily responsible for the copy of the EHR.
