Public Interest Webinar Series: Electronic Medical Records, Part I Ensuring the Integrity of EHRs—Practical Tips and Considerations - On Demand Recording

Recorded On: 04/19/2018

Time: 90 minutes
Session Format: On Demand Recording

With the rapid advancement of electronic health records (EHR) comes the opportunity to improve patient care and manage healthcare delivery in more efficient and less cost prohibitive ways.  As data systems and technologies evolve, protecting the privacy and security of health information and ensuring the integrity of EHRs is critical. EHR features such as cut and paste or "clone" capability, drop-down menus, and remote access ease administrative burdens on providers and should support better quality of care.  If not implemented and monitored effectively, however, these features can lead to a number of unintended consequences (e.g., inaccurate data, authentication failures, breach incidents, or misdiagnoses).  This webinar will focus on key integrity issues providers face and practical tips for avoiding common pitfalls.  The panelists will also touch on enforcement and oversight of EHR standards, including the Privacy and Security Rules and best practices for maintaining accurate data and, in turn, patient trust.
