Strategies for Automating Texas’ Unique Disclosure Requirements
Austin HIMSS Chapter – Lunch and Learn (Joe C. Thompson Conference Center, Austin, TX, April 11, 2017) Presentation by Timothy Kelly, MS, MBA, Taylor Healthcare
Texas is the only state with an active Medical Disclosure Panel. This results in a consent process that is a challenge for providers while being beneficial for patients. This presentation examines strategies for automating this process with a goal of allowing providers to focus on disclosure; not on documentation. Recommendations for leveraging technology to enhance safety are also presented.
