Janice Merrill and Chanel Mosley are presenting "EDs, EMRs & E-Discovery, Oh My! Addressing Related Concerns While Maintaining Optimal Provider Communication" at the Best Care Practices in the Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Continuum 2107.  The implementation of electronic medical records (EMRs) systems in the health care setting, compounded by the use of electronic devices (EDs) such as smartphones for emails, text messages, apps and similar platforms for transmitting private health information between health care providers has wreaked havoc on discovery requests in the health care litigation environment. Such activity has opened the door to growing concerns over patient privacy, as well as preservation of data when litigation is threatened or arises. This presentation will explore how these electronic platforms and communication devices have affected the manner in which long-term care providers communicate with physicians, as well as the importance of preserving that data and protecting its confidentiality to avoid a data breach. Tips for how to identify when the duty of preservation arises and how to address litigation holds will also be discussed.
