 Clinical application training space
How does your organization deal with the demand for classroom space when teaching clinical applications?  As more applications are coming online, with MD documentation, nursing, ancillaries, billing, etc., what type of physical training structure does your institution utilize?  Is it in numeous sites across the campus, or in 1 location?  Is this space used for just electronic application training, or is it dedicated?  Thanks

Answer Wiki:
I am currently doing Epic training for Ochsner Hospital in New Orleans. We are training approx 600 physicians, a couple thousand nurses, and of course, NP's, midwives, etc. Ochsner build temporary trailers, called Mod Spaces (Modular) and it has worked out fine. This allows for the physician to focus more on the training (being away from their clinical environment), and is still close enough to handle any emergencies that may arise. This, of course, increases the cost of training, but is actually cheaper than renting a training facility. Another option that I've seen used is the Horizon Training Centers. There are many of these centers across the country and they have the connectivity needed to train large groups at time.
