Defense Health Information Management System (DHIMS)
"EHR Insights" Training Magazine

Hillmer planned, managed, wrote, illustrated and produced innovative training materials for the Defense Health Information Management System (DHIMS), which provides the largest and most comprehensive electronic health record (EHR) system in the world, supporting the management of more than 9.5 million Military Health System beneficiary records.

EHR Insights is a multi-issue, 40-page, full-color, comic-book-style publication with its own cast of EHR-specific characters. In each issue, the characters are immersed in various scenarios and work together in storylines that help communicate important EHR topics to the end-users. The effectiveness and creativity of the training material also works to promote the EHR product and the DHIMS organization to various EHR stakeholders and policymakers.
