WHY: The best EHR application is useless if the system it runs on crashes. However, the discussion around electronic health record (EHR) systems has focused on the applications to the near-exclusion of the platforms they run on. In this Webinar, Mark R. Anderson will draw on 38 years in healthcare IT and his 2010 research to quantify the lost productivity, business disruption, and potentially compromised patient safety when healthcare professionals can't access electronic records. Anderson will recommend ways to determine downtime's productivity and financial costs, and questions for medical practices to ask their software providers to protect their investments.
