The Student CD can be networked, used for distance learning, or purchased individually or as a val pak with the book. The Medcin Student Edition Software may be value packed with Richard Gartee's Electronic Health Records - ISBN: 0131564862 for $10.00 more than the price of the text or as a stand alone Student CDROM - ISBN:0131789376 available from Prentice Hall. The software is multi-user allowing students to work simultaneously and keep work separate. Excercise print outs generated from Medcin automatically include the student's login name or ID. Medcin is the licensed core technology in many prominent EHR Systems. 10 out of 15 EHR systems for medical offices use Medcin nomenclature as the technology underlying commercial EHR systems. Students therefore are more likely to apply skills acquired in this course to an EHR application in their office. All work is printed and no excercises require saving. All excercises are designed to be completed during a normal class time. Printers use a standard Windows system. For distance learning, the software allows the student to "Print to HTML" which will output the exercise document into a file that can be emailed.
