Abstract: With shift-based work, outcomes of clinical decisions may not be known when a medical trainee transitions off a treatment team. The electronic health record (EHR) can be used to provide high-quality feedback and education. However, use of EHR of trainees when not actively treating a patient requires HIPAA compliant governance. This presentation proposes four regulations to guide safe, confidential private access of the EHR for educational purposes and may be used to develop local guidelines.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: Did you know clinical providers can use the electronic health record (EHR) to receive timely feedback and improve medical management based on the patients they evaluate? In the same way that a learning health network uses system results for continuous feedback, medical trainees can use the EHR to enhance their medical education. However, trainees must be cognizant of existing privacy rules and be aware of the boundary between “snooping” and legitimate medical education. Guidelines enumerated in this talk will provide compliant chart access for clinical feedback while preserving patient privacy.
