New National Electronic Health Record Safety System Launched
Date:11/15/2010

lliance said, "EHRs have tremendous potential to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare, but like any tool they must be designed and implemented in a way that uses best practices that strive to eliminate medical errors. We are anxious to collaborate with the EHRevent effort and we encourage all EHR vendors to participate because we believe that EHRevent can be an important communication platform to improve patient safety related not only to EHRs but to medical devices and drugs."

Data collected by EHRevent will also be used by the FDA to help evaluate any safety issues that may arise during the widespread implementation of this technology.

"We applaud the efforts of the iHealth Alliance to help assure the safety of EHRs," said Jeffrey Shuren, M.D., J.D., director of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health. "We look forward to working with the iHealth Alliance to encourage physicians and EHR vendors to report information on their experiences with electronic health records to EHRevent and other appropriate reporting systems."

EHRevent and a similar service for reporting adverse drug events via EHRs will be governed by the iHealth Alliance, with network operations provided by PDR Network.  PDR Network CEO, Edward Fotsch, M.D. explained, "EHRevent, and RxEvent for adverse drug events, will collect information using online forms that include the Common Format developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and will keep the information confidential through PDR Secure, a Patient Safety Organization, allowing only participating organizations to access the reports.

"We know that clinicians and health care organizations want to participate in efforts to improve patient care," said William Munier, M.D. Director for the Center for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, AHRQ. "Patient Safety Organizations (PSOs) facilitate a shared-learning approach that supports effective interventions to reduce risk
