Electronic Medical Records Audit Trails

Gain an understanding of the audit trails that are involved within electronic medical records for liability reasons. All who are involved in medical malpractice litigation (lawyers, health care risk managers, claims professionals, medical licensing agents) know how important the record is in evaluating a medical professional liability claim. Unlike paper medical records, the electronic medical record (EMR) can provide a detailed accounting of the timing of chart entries and audit of the identities of who have accessed and reviewed the chart. The 'audit trail' request that shows this embedded EMR information has become a standard discovery request and in some instances is being scrutinized more than the actual medical care. You will learn the liability and discovery issues associated with the EMR audit trail and the most recent court decisions that have changed the traditional practice of medical malpractice litigation. Do not let technology and the latest court decisions leave you behind. For all involved with medical malpractice, this is must know information.
