How EHR vendors are improving patient safety © CureMD Healthcare

EHRs • EHRs contribute to patient safety events primarily because of the introduction of technology • But technology has improved patient safety only in some areas. In others, it has introduced new areas of risk • The fact of the matter is, no EHR vendor is willing to risk their company stock price by sharing data that explains how they played a contributory role or could have prevented an issue

EHRs • A number of things can point to things which may cause issues, such as: – Software bugs which can cause a potential risk – Unsupported workflows adopted by clients which diverge from standard workflows causing potential patient safety issues – Poor application design – All of the above • what differentiates an EHR vendor from others is its ability to be a company that continually innovates, updates and iterates

EHRs • Any vendor who claims their software is completely perfect is not fooling anybody • What makes a vendor unique is the level of transparency they offer to the industry and to their customers • A cloud-based platform helps EHR vendors like CureMD in identifying and assisting in diagnosing the impact of any particular issue

Institute of Medicine • The Institute of Medicine recommends: – Reporting of health IT-related adverse events should be mandatory for vendors – Health IT vendors should support the free exchange of information, including details relating to patient safety – Regular public reporting of health IT-related adverse events to encourage transparency • EHR vendors can look to partner with patient safety organizations which actively publish relevant information from patient safety data • It will not be possible with just one EHR vendor; it requires other vendors to come on board with their data as well
