Up in the Cloud - Digital/Electronic Case Notes & Recordkeeping: Key Ethical & Legal Considerations.
The adoption of cloud-based software and online therapy has transformed the process of keeping therapy case notes and records from paper-based format to digital formats such as cloud-based case record systems or custom-built digital record keeping systems. While such technological advancements have improved quality, safety, efficiency, access, and provision of integrated care, there have been numerous ethical and legal concerns. For instance, the use and storage of data, issues of backup, access to case-notes post subscription, ethics and the use of Artificial Intelligence tools. Choosing a provider or platform raises further issues of confidentiality concerns, data standards, data quality, and ownership - not to mention cybersecurity breaches. It is important to assess your practice needs, templates required as a private practitioner or as a service manager, and to consider what happens if the system is compromised, and what might be your responsibility in such cases. Additionally, it is important to consider what happens to electronic records if you move service providers or they shut down their business.
In this webinar, Dr Kris Rao will discuss and help to clarify clinical, ethical, and legal considerations of keeping digital/electronic records from the Australia & New Zealand context. You will receive free templates on digital/electronic case notes checklists, key principles chart, and checklists for transitioning.
Identify and differentiate key steps in transitioning to electronic records.
