The Intersection of Public Health and Health Care: Health Care Data and the Law in the 21st Century, All Parts - On Demand Recording

Time: 90 minutes
Sessions Format: On Demand Recording

The 21st century has brought an abundance of health related technologies and information systems. These innovations have opened a new world of electronic health records, health metrics, and disease surveillance; allowing health professionals to improve quality of care, combat current health issues, and increase communication with patients and within health organizations. However, the new technologies also come with legal, privacy, security, and payment concerns that must be addressed.

This webinar series, co-sponsored by the Center for Disease Control's Public Health Law Program and the American Health Lawyers Association, offers an overview of current trends in laws regarding electronic health records, health data sharing, and Medicare payment systems; and how they are affecting quality of care, the fight against antibiotic resistance, and patient care in public health emergencies.

Note: No CLE offered for this course.

 

  • The Intersection of Public Health and Health Care: Health Care Data and the Law in the 21st Century, Part I: Collecting Data: Electronic Health Records and the Law - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 06/21/2017

    With encouragement from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other health organizations, electronic health records (EHR) are replacing paper medical records in most medical settings. The new digital records systems allow for improvements in record keeping and transmission, increases in communication between patients and practitioners, and employment of tools to analyze health data and improve patient care. However, legal and security concerns have developed alongside EHRs. This webinar is designed to provide a legal framework for the implementation and operation of EHR systems, discuss the use of EHR data and predictive analytics to forecast patient outcomes, and identify cybersecurity concerns and how they can be mitigated.

  • The Intersection of Public Health and Health Care: Health Care Data and the Law in the 21st Century, Part II: Linking Data and Quality: A Look at Antibiotic Resistance - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 07/20/2017

    Since the introduction of antibiotics in the 20th century, bacteria have found ways to mutate and combat the lifesaving medications. Today, overuse and misuse of antibiotics have boosted antibiotic resistance prompting health professionals to find unique ways to curtail antibiotic prescriptions and halt the spread of these dangerous new forms of bacteria. This webinar is designed to discuss how innovative payment and health data systems are advancing the fight against antibiotic resistance. Speakers also plan to provide insight on antibiotic stewardship, the effects of value based systems and Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act requirements on antibiotic prescription control, and the first national regulations aimed at improving antibiotic use in long-term care facilities.
