The 2018 AHLA Physicians and Hospitals Law Institute focuses on Health Information and Technology. Amy Leopard, partner with Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, co-presents with Mel Tully, vice president of clinical services and education with Nuance Communications, on clinical documentation in electronic health records and enabling technologies. Their presentation includes discussion regarding:

  • Traditional risks with managing the complexity of clinical information needed for treatment, medical necessity, clinical decision support, payment, and quality reporting
  • New risks with sophisticated clinical documentation software and enabling technologies providing interactive choices for medical record documentation and feedback on documentation quality
  • Compliance safeguards to manage the quality and integrity of clinical documentation
