Here at EMR Thoughts we’re going to do our best to keep track of which EHR vendors and other healthcare IT companies choose to adopt the EHR Code of Conduct. Hopefully by doing so we can offer at least one small part in helping to hold EHR vendors accountable for the code.
Today, Siemens Healthcare Adopted the EHR Developer Code of Conduct. Siemens was a major part of the effort to create the EHR code of conduct, so this doesn’t come as a surprise. Unfortunately, the press release didn’t have any details or a link to a website or anything to show how they’ve actually implemented the EHR code of conduct.
If you’re someone who uses a Siemens Healthcare product, I’d love to see if you think that they’re following the EHR Code of Conduct or if they still have room to improve. Hopefully we can get more exposure for those EHR vendors that really implement the spirit of the EHR Code of Conduct and expose those who do so only with their lips.
