Clinical Transformation Initiative Web Based Training Modules

Children’s National Health System is currently in the process of aligning clinical processes, organizational behavior, and emerging technologies through our Clinical Transformation Initiative (CTI). CTI is an exciting process that is transforming how Children’s National delivers health care. This transition to complete electronic medical records (EMR) will enable us to enhance our world-class care and quality outcomes through the use of best practices in quality, safety, and work flow. 

A small percentage of hospitals across the country are fully electronic, so the implementation of the EMR is an exciting time for Children’s National as we lead the way in implementing new technologies that are designed to ensure that quality care in the safest environment is provided to each patient.

Training is required on Children’s National's clinical systems to obtain system access. The web-based training will require two-four hours to complete.
