Minimizing Risks Associated with EMR
With the increased use of EHRs comes the increased risk of liabilities. Experts note that e-discovery is becoming a new trend in lawsuits against physicians. E-discovery refers to the practice of attorneys seeking access to EHRs and other electronic records as they build a case against a physician.

Join the Louisiana HIE, Greenway Medical Technologies and Health Information Associates in a panel.
Improving health care in the United States through the use of health information technology is a major initiative today. For providers, it begins with the adoption and meaningful use of electronic health records (EHRs). The next step involves the ability to securely exchange health information within and across states for the purpose of
promoting continuity of patient care.
Greenway understands the importance of healthcare IT interoperability to support improved care coordination and outcomes. Toward that goal, we are an active participant in IHE, an organization dedicated to creating the framework for passing vital health information seamlessly — from application to application, solution to solution, and setting to setting — across multiple healthcare enterprises.
