Part-2: Examine the elements of an Electronic Health Record (EHR)
Describe the difference between primary and secondary information sources.
Define data, character, field, record, file, and information. Give examples of each.
Examine the screenshot below of an EHR registration screen. Analyze the parts of the screen and give 3 examples from the screenshot of each of the following: data, a character, and a field. (For example: Show that the Patient Name area is a field.) You can do this as a list, a table, or graphically right on the screenshot (if you know how to do that!). You can be creative with this, and make it easier for someone new to understand the terminology.
