Following enactment of the HITECH Act in 2009 and the Accountable Care Act in 2010, there's a lot to talk about at the American Health Information Management Association's 2010 Legal EHR Summit, scheduled for Aug. 16-17 in Chicago.

Among other issues, sessions will focus on national policy perspectives shaping the legal electronic health record, new requirements--and liabilities--with privacy and security, new litigation challenges affecting health information management departments, effective patient identification management, and questions to ask EHR vendors about meaningful use provisions.

In the final session, Jonathan Teich, M.D., chief medical information officer at Elsevier Health Sciences, will discuss how social media will change the EHR. Pre-registration ends on Aug. 6 with onsite registration after that date at the event. More information is available at
