EHRs and Safety

We published a blog post Thursday where our policy team, lead by Kathy Kenyon and Steve Posnack (@HITpol) help you identify and address unsafe conditions associated with Health IT (in fact, that’s the headline!). The guide referenced in the blog post is designed to “help clinicians and other EHR users address health IT-related safety issues” using new guides we posted on HealthIT.gov. We encourage anyone who uses EHRs and the developers who create them to please take a look.
