o patient-safe advances."

Professional liability carriers who insure doctors against malpractice claims are among the strongest supporters of EHRevent.

"EHRs can impact both the care that is delivered and the record of that care," explained David Troxel, M.D., medical director for The Doctors Company, which is the country's largest professional liability carrier.  "EHRs can play a major role in advancing the practice of good medicine, but there are often unanticipated consequences when new technologies are deployed and it is important to collect and disseminate EHR user experience as these powerful systems are adopted."

Alan Lembitz, M.D., vice president of Patient Safety and Risk Management for COPIC Insurance Company, added, "Our experience indicates that EHRs have the capacity either to induce or to reduce medical errors in very unique ways, and we have seen data that indicates that EHR adoption may reduce physician liability. It will be increasingly important to understand best practices to improve patient safety for EHRs and for their users, and EHRevent will help both."

EHRevent is also working directly with EHR vendors as well as Regional Extension Centers (RECs), which are federally designated groups that assist physicians with EHR selection and adoption.  Participating EHR vendors and RECs will help educate physicians regarding the importance of EHR event reporting and will receive reports as EHRevent partners.

"Patient safety is at the core of our mission to assist in the adoption of EHRs," explained Kathy Mechler, co-director and chief operating officer for the Texas A&M Health Science Center Rural and Community Health Institute, which includes the CentrEast REC. "We look forward to working with the many EHRevent partners to help educate providers and drive safe EHR adoption."
