Public Interest Webinar Series: Electronic Medical Records, Part II: Quality of care / patient safety - On Demand Recording

Recorded On: 05/03/2018

Time: 90 minutes
Session Format: On Demand Recording

Today, providers rely heavily on EHRs and we continue to see gradual developments surrounding quality and safety features.  While EHRs certainly allow providers to better manage patient care, they can also give rise to patient safety and quality issues.   The panel, which includes a representative of the Joint Commission, in-house counsel of a health system, and a consultant, will provide their perspectives on topics such as alert fatigue, role based access rights, modifications to health care records, proactive care and metrics, medical management, and other key issues the industry faces. This session will also explore processes that can help identify potential safety issues before they can harm patients or affect quality of care and explore policy options that could advance the patient safety aspects of EHR use.
