    ​I noted several posts related to error correction in the EMR , focused on Meditech.  Many helpful suggestions and workflows, however would like to hear from other facilities that have Allscripts, Cerner, Epic or other systems and the workflow, processes policies that they follow.  I do hope  that I can inspire conversation on this topic for future interoperability of our ideas in a common practice.

    Right now as we just are finishing our roll out of our inpatient EMR, we are an acute LTACH facility , the issue of error correction, amendment and information , that is incorrect carrying through templates is a process we need to address consistently.  I have started a grid , informal of what the error is and how to address it.  The one vexing issue is information pulled through, and the length of time that passes before discovery.  Appreciate discussion, dialogue, tips, workflows that others recommend and follow.
