Presented by

Risk Management Consult for
Health Information Technology

Health information technology promises benefits in almost every aspect of clinical practice.  However, devices and software used to document medical care are subject to failures, errors and adverse effects that create new pathways for patient harm. This program surveys how medical records can create potential liability risks, including general features of electronic health records, data and order entry, e-mail and texting, decision support systems and device safety.  The program also touches upon social media and cyber security.
  • Demonstrate how health information technology can reduce and increase liability exposure
  • Identify specific risks to patient safety from electronic health records
  • Illustrate how electronic health records may complicate the defense of medical malpractice and employment law cases
