In recent years, and now more than ever, the push to move health records to an EHR system is radiating throughout the healthcare industry. Technologies such as EHR systems without a shadow of doubt ease the workflow and storage of records, but recently there has been some concern regarding fraud and abuse of medical claims from EHRs. OIG has published an executive summary titled “CMS and its contractors have adopted few program integrity practices to address vulnerabilities in EHRs (OCI-01-11-00571)” that cautions the use of EHRs due to the increased ease to commit fraud. Although the OIG report does raise valid issues among the health information technology space, it doesn’t apply to all EHR systems practices. MediSked’s Connect platform has controls in place to prevent fraud as outlined by the report.
