Satisfactory Essays
Health care has an obligation to protect patient information and make sure that their information is only accessed by those involved in the patient’s care or by those whose job requires them to access that information. The purpose of this paper is to review the intent of the electronic heath record (EHR) along with the mandates related to them and review the steps on how to implement EHR. I will relate meaningful use, which is one of the steps of implementing an electronic health record, and how my own facility is attaining it. I will also discuss HIPAA laws and how patient confidentiality could be threatened by improperly using EHR.
