This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of psychiatrists in clinical practice.
Technologies have expanded opportunities for psychiatrists to engage in a variety of clinically significant contacts with patients outside of the traditional office setting. Electronic health records impact how clinical information is created and stored. When deploying technologies in their practices, psychiatrists should remain mindful of the need to deliver treatment that meets or exceeds the standard of care and the impact of technology on treatment delivery. Participants will be able to develop a risk management plan to reduce professional liability risk related to the adoption of technologies and to comply with regulatory requirements.
