Healthcare providers and clinic managers have three common myths about EMR user monitoring auditing.

Myth #1 – The electronic medical record EMR automatically does all the auditing – I don’t have to do anything

Myth #2 – I don’t have to audit my users – I know them

Myth #3 – I won’t have to worry about this until I have a breach

Rob Pruter, the User Monitoring Expert at SPHER is my guest on this episode of Practice Management Nuggets For Your Healthcare Practice!

He’s going to share with us how to protect your practice and your patients when you use Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that can recognize unusual activities and generate a warning message.

Finally, an easy way to perform user monitoring and quickly recognize risks from external bad actors and employee snooping incidents!
