As I mentioned in my previous post, I decided to try out some videos related to EMR, EHR and healthcare IT. I’m still not sure if it’s a good idea or not, but I created 4 videos in my inaugural experience. I just used a simple web cam to create the videos since I was also streaming it live on uStream. Maybe next time I’ll set up my HD camera and do it that way.
Either way, here’s one of the videos I recorded where I respond to the following question:
Once converting paper to digital in an EMR, how long do providers plan to keep their charts?
Full Dislaimer: I’m not a lawyer, so be sure to consult a lawyer for legal advice:-)
If you like the video, be sure to check out one of the other videos I posted on EMR and EHR about EMR Data Sharing.
Let me know what you think of the videos. Should I do more? Should my face not be on video ever again? Are there other questions you’d like me to answer?
