AHLA: EHR, HIE and PHR Legal Liability Task Force

Today I participated in the first call of the American Health Lawyers Association’s Task Force on Electronic Health Records and Legal Liability.

The task force will focus its efforts on the legal liabilities associated with Electronic Health Records (EHR), Health Information Exchanges (HIE) and Personal Health Records (PHR).

The group is being led by Jud DeLoss and Kathy Kenyon, both members of AHLA. There was a wealth of health lawyer experience and expertise on the initial conference call. I’m looking forward to helping out on the effort and learning lots from the the task force members on this project.

To follow up on Jud’s blog post, we would welcome any input that others have on the legal liability issues.
