Electronic Health Records: Malpractice Liability Concerns and Consequences

Are you looking for a better understanding of the latent and unintentional medical malpractice exposures that exist as the healthcare industry transforms from paper to electronic health records? Hospitals and physician groups are accelerating their efforts to implement EHR systems based on the potential for substantial quality and cost improvements, but there is evidence that during this rapid deployment, medical malpractice exposures are increasing. Most small, mid-sized and many larger physician group practices do not have the administrative infrastructure to effectively manage the daunting transition from the paper world to the world of electronic communications. Even in the most sophisticated hospitals, the medical liability exposures inherent in the adoption of EHRs are often overlooked. The EHR environment is complex, and it raises the bar higher than it has ever been before in areas such as accurate documentation, tracking and follow-up, and continuity of care.

Join us as a moderated panel of experts discusses the "Pitfalls and Perils of the Electronic Health Record" and how to effectively overcome them.
