Safety Issues Associated with Electronic Health Records Integration - By Compliance Global Inc.

Online Event



As a result of the American Reinvestment & Recovery Act in 2009, the integration of the electronic health record system (EHR) revolutionized the documentation of patient care. The expectations of the EHR were tremendous and promised greater efficiency, accuracy and coordinated care.

Clinical errors, inaccuracies, complex workflows and compliance remain a reality following EHR integration. Although electronic documentation provides a massive repository for rapid communication of vital patient information and viewing of critical data questions remain related to patient safety training.

Electronic documentation is challenging to the legal team’s interpretation of the medical record. The legal team may be unaware of many hidden aspects that impact the delivery of safe, quality care. In addition, factors such as workarounds, poor application design, incomplete testing procedures, instructional design barriers and lack of end user training may not be readily apparent to the legal team when reviewing the EHR. Both human and technical components of EHRs remain challenging in the clinical setting. The promise of the EHR being a solution to the complexity of healthcare is certainly challenging for clinicians.
