Overview: The webinar topic will be a presentation and analysis of the key advantages and disadvantages of current electronic medical records systems for providers, hospitals, patients, and other stakeholders, the unanticipated problems and issues, a discussion of emerging evidence-based approaches to improving the implementation, effectiveness, and ease of use of EMRs, and a discussion of what the future holds for the further evolution of EMRs. The anticipated benefits of those who designed EMRs included: improved billing and coding accuracy, improved quality of care and outcomes, saved time for busy physicians, decrease costs of care, and active engagement of patients in their care.

Although these benefits have been largely realized in some delivery settings, many physicians and other providers continue to be frustrated with the typical disadvantages of EMRs: high initial costs and maintenance costs, often oriented to billing rather than clinical care, require excessive time and training to use, interference in the doctor-patient relationship, greater privacy and security issues, lack of interoperability to allow the sharing of data across EMR systems and health settings, and most do not readily provide data needed for care measures required for the emerging value-based reimbursement programs, etc. Discussion will include key contextual and other factors that enhance effective implementation and use as well as a description of the likely evolution of health IT and EHRs in the next decade and the changes needed to realize the promise of EMRs.

Why should you Attend: Although EMRs have been shown to have positive impacts on health care and outcomes and are increasingly being required or incentivized by federal and other payers of care, many physicians and other health care providers are increasingly concerned and frustrated with the perceived negative factors: steep initial and ongoing costs, increased training and documentation time, implementation difficulties, how to comply with payer requirements, patient privacy concerns, and intrusion in the provider-patient relationships, among others.

This webinar will discuss and address both the positive and negative aspects of EMRs and provide advice concerning effective techniques or approaches for enhancing the positive aspects and managing or reducing the impact of the EMR barriers or issues on health care providers, patients, payers, quality improvement professionals, researchers, and other key stakeholder groups. The presentation will also provide key insights concerning what the future of EMRs' use in the health system holds and how providers and other stakeholders can effectively prepare for this evolution and its associated changes.

Current status of EMR implementation in healthcare
EMR strengths and weaknesses (e.g., improved legibility, continuity, and access, enhanced prevention, but privacy and security issues, lack of interoperability, not user friendly, excessive documentation time)
Examples of effective approaches for using EMRs more effectively and engaging patients
Discussion of healthcare settings where EMRs have been most effective and why (what contextual factors are essential to implementation success)
