Lecture Topic: Using Audit Trails to Find Tampering and Negligence in Electronic Medical Records
Learn about audit trails and litigation from a practicing Advanced Legal Nurse Consultant. This lecture will introduce ALNCs to the EMR (Electronic Medical Record), and its Siamese twin, the audit trail. Learn about audit trails and metadata and why you cannot review a medical record without them. This lecture will provide you with a basic understanding of the audit trail, and why it is an imperative piece of the legal medical record. Learn about screen shots, how to detect electronic medical record tampering, how to tell who viewed or changed a record, and even how to tell from which terminal the information was charted. The audit trail can find the "smoking gun" that every attorney wants. Now you will be your attorney's secret weapon.
