Multiple EHR passwords are a must [VIDEO]


EHR systems can be a major asset for your practice – if they're used correctly. If you run a small practice, you may be tempted to take a few shortcuts with your system, but you need to be careful.

Medscape recently pointed out some simple mistakes physicians may make with their systems.

For instance, in a small practice where the staff feels like family, it may seem like a good idea for everyone to use the same password to keep things simple. This is a mistake.

It's important for all staff members to have their own password to keep track of who accessed a file and when. This way, if there's ever even a minor security issue, you'll always have a clear record of who's been accessing files.
