How to Reduce the Safety Risks of EHRs
Don't just rely on technology. It is vital that you have processes in place for auditing, backing up, and cross-checking data in your electronic health record (EHR), according to Lily Talakoub, MD, FAAD, of McLean Dermatology and Skincare Center in McLean, Virginia, and The Doctors Company's EHR Closed Claims Study. Dr. Talakoub discusses the biggest risks identified in the study, including that imaging and labs are often not found or not followed up on in the EHR or errors with copy and paste, and shares the processes that her office uses to lessen these risks.
