Most doctors say patient health, safety jeopardized by EHR outages
from Health Data Management
More than half of U.S. physicians indicate that the health or safety of their patients was put in jeopardy because of an electronic health record system outage. That’s the finding of a new survey by SERMO, a social networking website exclusively for doctors. According to the Office of the National Coordinator for health IT, EHR outages represent a significant potential patient safety hazard that directly affects patient care, raising the likelihood of increased risk of medication errors, lack of access to images and canceled procedures.
