Government issues NEW resources to help ensure safety of electronic health records

Continuing to encourage the use of electronic health records, on January 15, 2014, HHS issued new resources to help providers address Electronic Health Record safety. HHS’s Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) issued the Safety Assurance Factors for EHR Resilience (SAFER) Guides. These SAFER Guides are tools such as checklists and recommended practices that can help providers assess risks and improve safety of electronic health records. The Guides are part of HHS’s Health IT Patient Safety Action and Surveillance Plan, implemented last year.

You can read the news release about these new SAFER Guides at:

And you can review the guides here:
