CDLA Members Only Please / 1 hour CLE applied for

Katherine Otto, Messner Reeves, LLP

Most health care providers utilize some form of electronic medical records in their practice, and a significant number of health care offices are paperless.  EMR’s are critically important for contemporaneous recordkeeping and maintaining patient flow.  However, EMR software was not designed to facilitate litigation, and simply printing the patient record often excludes crucial information that may materially impact defenses in a case.

This CLE will offer insights and suggestions for obtaining, preserving, and capturing the EMR during litigation, and will address common issues that may arise, including limitations on access, discovery of audit trails, and inadequate recordkeeping.  The CLE will also offer tips on using EMR evidence at trial and overcoming evidentiary objections.
