I’m happy to announce that EMR and HIPAA will be having a second blogger participating in spreading the EMR and EHR love. Her name is Elizabeth and she’ll be offering a very different perspective on EMR and EHR than I could ever do. I think that most people know that I’m a technical person that just loves working with EMRs. Elizabeth is going to offer more of the legal and hospital perspective of EMR. I’m really interested myself to read her posts and learn more about how doctors can benefit from their hospitals purchasing an EMR. I personally have always heard that things like this were possible, but that sounded like the Holy Grail of EMR to me. Hopefully Elizabeth can help us find that Holy Grail or at least inform us about how it works.
Of course, I don’t want to pigeon hole Elizabeth into one topic. Just like I often get side tracked with other personal and technical concepts, I hope that Elizabeth will occasionally do the same.
Since we may be discussing some legal issues I feel inclined to share the following:
Comments on EMRandHIPAA.com do not represent legal advice and we do not have an attorney-client relationship. If you want legal advice, you should contact a qualified attorney that may help you.
Sorry for the disclaimer, but it’s necessary. In fact, I’ll be posting it at the bottom of my blog as soon as I get a chance.
You can expect Elizabeth’s first post starting tomorrow.
