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

Time: 90 minutes
Format: On Demand Recording

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.

Note: No CLE offered for this course.

This webinar is presented in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
