Partners Maslow & Donnelly Present Program to Aria Health Care Doctors

Partners Susan Maslow and Thomas Donnelly presented the seminar “New Technologies, New Worries” to the medical professionals employed as family practice and emergency care residents within the Aria Health Care system.  The seminar focused on the implementation of electronic medical records systems in the health care industry and the impact of electronic medical records on the litigation process as well as the statutory ramifications of improper billing.   As to traditional negligence litigation, topics included the electronic audit trail which now follows every medical record, the uses of metadata to authenticate records and data entry and communications among medical professionals and with the patient.  Statutory issues focused on the application of the False Claims Act to upcoding and unbundling of services billed to Medicare, whistleblowers and the allocation of responsibility for statutory breaches in employment agreements.
