Fueled in part by the incentives offered through the Meaningful Use program, increasing numbers of healthcare providers—from single practitioner office practices to large multi-site healthcare networks—are adopting EMR technology.
Often the rush to implement the system, however, can override careful analysis of the system impact on risk and patient safety. Similarly, the focus on developing EMR templates designed to result in quality indicator reports and maximized billing, can inadvertently encourage documentation that no longer tells the story of the patient’s care.
To ensure that patient safety and risk considerations are built into the system along with ease of use and functionality, the presenters of this webinar draw on the lessons they learned from an enterprise use of an EMR in a technically progressive healthcare network. Participants will be provided with tips and guidelines to ensure that patient safety and risk considerations are built into their systems.
By the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:
Carolyn Coleman, RN, JD, CPHRM
Director, Risk Management

Brian LaSalle, MS, CPCU, ARM, CPHRM
