Physicians Insurance Offers No-Cost Webinar on EMR

May 5, 2012 - Seattle, WA - Physicians Insurance A Mutual Company announces a no-cost, new webinar scheduled for May 22, 2012 at 1 p.m. PST designed to help practitioners best use EMR and minimize medical professional liability risk.

  1. Describe how EMR is utilized in a malpractice lawsuit, both by plaintiff and by the defense. 
  2. Demonstrate strategies for using EMR to reduce liability risk.
  3. List common EMR pitfalls in the litigation context.
