Health IT Safety Webinar Series

Join other health care and patient safety professionals for the first webinar of a 10-part series on health information technology (IT) and patient safety. Presented by RTI International and funded by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), these webinars will cover a wide range of topics, research, and programs, all related to the objectives of using health IT to make care safer and of continuously improving the safety and safe use of health IT.

This is the first webinar in the series, which is being offered free of charge.

This webinar will present recent research on the role of health IT in adverse events from two different perspectives. The first presentation will look at the impact of advanced EHRs on adverse events reported to the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority. The second presentation will explore how health IT contributed to sentinel events reported to the Joint Commission. Together, these presentations suggest that advanced EHRs have reduced adverse events and created a new, significantly better foundation for patient safety, while also introducing new sources of potential harm, which must be addressed.
