Although EMRs software was designed for greater efficiency in documentation, the large number of different systems, many of which perform different functions, programs that don’t “talk” to each other, and the frequent mixing of hand-written and electronic records can make an LNC’s journey through the world medical records feel bewildering.
Difficulty in deciphering electronic medical records is especially frustrating because it can hamper an LNC’s efforts to discover crucial information about the merits of a case. That’s why I’ve invited Diane Tomacelli, a nurse and expert on deciphering medical records, to explain some of the mysteries of EMRs.
Diane describes a range of issues. She also explains the importance of knowing the different kinds of information various EMRs capture and how to interpret the results. In describing the importance of requesting an audit trail, she explains the importance of having clarity on what kind of information you want. If you only need five or six pages of information, you must be careful not to make a request that will give you five- or six- hundred pages.
Perhaps the most important thing she makes clear is that few attorneys have the experience of ability to tackle the many aspects of EMRs. That’s good news for LNCs, and it’s also one of the best reasons for you to watch this Legal Nurse Podcast.
