• Worldwide Health Information System Simulation Linkage (WHISSL)

From the University of Texas Medical Branch, this tool offers sequential web-based cases to enable students to improve their skills in assessment and problem management. The site is based on the Electronic Patient Record (EPR), so assignments can be developed that focus on health record-related functions other than medical diagnosis and treatment decisions. The individual cases also provide additional contextual information about the patient's culture and situation, so the student considers the person, not just the particular health problem. The site will provide educational institutions a license and their own customizable version of the WHISSL web site at no cost. This web site is supported by the University of Texas Medical Branch and developed through grants from the Bureau of Health Professions, HRSA, DHHS.
