Electronic Medical Records is an excellent source of information for all those involved in medical negligence cases about new issues being raised regarding electronic medical records. Topics addressed include:

  • An introduction in the differences between the hard copy chart and the EMR
  • Anticipated requests for information that was not available previously with the hard copy medical chart
  • New deposition issues
  • Theories of liability that were not previously viable in the absence of an EMR system
  • An overview of the most recent appellate decisions on issues involving the EMR
For anyone involved in medical malpractice cases, this book is a must read. Without knowing the pitfalls of an EMR system, health, legal and claim professionals will not know their cases.

The adoption and implementation of electronic medical records (EMRs) has dramatically changed the healthcare profession. Years of medical documentation standards and practices based on hard-copy records written by pen or pencil will soon be obsolete. Further, health information maintained in EMR is now being shared and leveraged for other uses that were not even considered as recently as a decade ago.

With the changes in medical professional liability claims, professionals must be knowledgeable of the changes brought on by the adoption of EMRs to assist in the investigation of negligence claims. Electronic Medical Records is an excellent source to provide all those involved in medical negligence cases to become aware of the new issues being raised in the prosecution of negligence cases because of the EMR.
