The Malpractice Risk of Electronic Health Records

Heralded as a way to improve healthcare practices, electronic health records (EHR) can have unintended consequences that can be deadly. Improvements in technology have spurred the growth of medical technology companies pitching EHR as a way for medicine to enter the technological age. In addition, laws such as the Affordable Care Act give doctors and hospitals incentive to embrace these technologies at a hurried pace, potentially leading to mistaken or missing inputs and an overreliance on untested technology. Consequently, adaptors need to be aware of the potential for “EHR malpractice” and should familiarize themselves with the potential pitfalls, from software system selection to its implementation and use. In this talk, I will point out technical design flaws, the potential for user error and data breaches, and the difficulty in determining fault. It is essential that we understand this up and coming legal issue so we can all act in our clients’ best interests.

As a result of attending this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify areas that potentially expose EHR adaptors to “EHR malpractice.”
  2. Recognize the limitations of EHR—from software to users.
  3. Address client needs more fully by being better able to identify opportunities for improvement and the resulting benefits to clients.
