MLMIC’s newest online CME-only modules address risk management topics related to physician advertising, telephone triage, electronic health records and voice recognition software.
MLMIC supports exploring ways to reduce the barriers that computers in exam rooms may introduce into the physician patient relationship. Actively engaging patients in the process of incorporating their health concerns into the EHR may be beneficial to both the patient and the provider.
Hospitals aren’t the only facilities at risk. Private practices, which typically do not have onsite IT personnel, are vulnerable to ransomware and other attacks by hackers.
Efforts are underway by companies who create EHRs to design and implement health IT systems that produce more targeted and relevant alerts to decrease alert fatigue, while still providing beneficial warnings.
