Safety Series: Electronic Medical Records Risk and Claims Mitigation
March 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The benefits of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) include higher quality and safer care for patients and more efficient communication, but there have been unintended consequences as a result of widespread adoption of EHRs at healthcare organizations. Several medical malpractice liability claims studies have indicated that a new category of medical legal liability has emerged from EHR misuse, and courts and counsel on both sides of the “v” are grappling with confusing electronic documentation as a result. This session will focus on what you need to know about the most common EHR medical liability risks stemming from misuse and the emerging best practices for dealing with them. In addition, it will explore the issues surrounding the discovery and admissibility of EHR data sources to inform your health care team’s documentation practices on legal evidence that can impact court outcomes.
