Electronic Medical Records Audit Trails


Gain a better understanding of what the audit trail is and how it relates to electronic medical records.

Many understand what the ERM is and how it is used in and out of the health care field. However, many do not understand that the EMR is a fraction of the information captured. There is a large amount of metadata being collected called the audit trail. The audit trail can give key insight into the medical review, but without an understanding of what the data means, it can lead to costly misconceptions. This course will provide an overview of the regulations involved with their use. In addition, there will be a brief discussion on key topics to review when analyzing the audit trail. This will help enable you to make informed decisions on how to use the audit trail within your own practice.
