As electronic health records become more prevalent and start to become the legal medical record, The American Health Information Management Association's 2011 Legal EHR Summit, Aug. 15-16 in Chicago, will sort through the myriad of issues arising.

Adam Greene, a partner in the law firm Davis Wright Tremaine and a former official in the Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights, will analyze current federal policies affecting the legal EHR during the opening keynote.

Other topics being tackled during the show cover how accountable care organizations and value-based purchasing programs affect the legal EHR, implications of Web-hosted EHRs on managing information, how EHRs can be used in litigation, legal issues when participating in a health information exchange, and the advantages and liabilities of social media.
