BOSTON, April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Records Institute (MRI) announces a new TEPR Award category: EMRs Best Meeting Medicolegal Requirements. Honorees will be announced at the TEPR 2008 opening session on Monday, May 19, in Fort Lauderdale FL.
This new TEPR Award is the first major effort to challenge EMR vendors to demonstrate that their products meet a range of EMR medicolegal requirements, including identity and authentication, document version management, signature events, data integrity and document event auditing functions.
TEPR Awards have a long history of recognizing leading EMR and health IT solutions, with honorees gaining market recognition and customers guidance toward selecting and implementing EMRs and other health IT solutions.
Prior to TEPR, candidates for the award (who must be TEPR exhibitors) will complete a questionnaire designed by a team of independent attorneys, legal experts, and EMR and health information management professionals. Judges will score the submissions to determine finalists, who must make a 15-minute demonstration to the panel of judges at TEPR in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, May 18, 2008. These presentations will be open to all TEPR registrants, including members of the press. Judges will then determine first, second, and third honors to be announced at the TEPR opening session on Monday, May 19.
Other TEPR 2008 Awards categories include Hot Products and Personal Health Records. All TEPR Award categories have similar requirements and processes for vendor submissions.
