General Hospital has determined that within three years, the paper-based health record it currently uses will be replaced with an electronic health record. General Hospital prefers to have a vendor install a computer system that allows for some tailoring to its institutional needs. You are a member of a committee that will evaluate and select the computer system. As a member of the committee, recommend the issues that should take high priority when assessing the requirements of a new system. Draft a recommendation to the committee that would include what legal issues should be raised to the committee and hospital about possible barriers and problems to implementing an electronic health record? Assuming those barriers and problems are resolved, what legal issues should be addressed with the committee and hospital in the evaluation and selection process?
