Webinar: Risk and the EHR: Drilling Deeper (EHR Series 2 of 2)
August 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This webinar is the last in a two-part series, the first of which provided a general overview to the risks found to be associated with electronic health records (EHR). This second webinar will drill deeper into actual data related to claims that involve issues with the EHR. We strongly urge any member facility or physician clinic employee who did not attend our recent Trends in Healthcare Risk Conference to participate in this webinar. Our presenters for this webinar are Penny Greenberg and Dana Siegal of CRICO Strategies. CRICO is the professional liability carrier for the Harvard University Healthcare System. Ms. Greenberg was most recently a member of our Faculty for the LHATF Trends in Healthcare Risk Conference.
Goals of this webinar are:
• To enhance skills for performing risk assessments of a facility’s EHR system
• To raise awareness of and aid in the analyzing of “near misses”
• To aid in the development of a facility-wide policy of open communication for responding when an employee becomes aware of an EHR issue
