Virtual Patients for EMR teaching

There is some interesting work at the University of Calgary where we have been using OpenLabyrinth as the infrastructure in creating a pseudo-EMR (electronic medical record) interface.

Standard EMRs are not very useful for teaching and have many limitations. But we needed a tool to facilitate teaching for our students about key principles in EMR use. OpenLabyrinth provided a very useful framework to enable this.
