Patagonia Health believes that EHR training doesn’t stop after go-live. Prior to go-live, users are focused on learning and practicing the basics of their day-to-day job. Patagonia Health has lots of advanced capabilities which users wish to learn as they get proficient in using the EHR. Our user focus groups are a perfect opportunity for you to learn advanced features, tips and share best practices with your peers from other counties. Similarly, Health Director User Groups (HDUG) focus on topics at higher level e.g. federal and state reporting.
