Should we join CurrentCare?
My answer - yes, absolutely. I created this topic for discussion after reading a comment by Dr. Concannon in another discussion. It is possible that I am taking his point out of context, and I welcome feedback by Dr. Concannon, but I think it brings up an excellent point for discussion. "The only solution is legislative action that will give some legal protections for our side in the event of an inadvertent or malicious data breach. We really shouldn’t be all that cooperative in HIE efforts such as CurrentCare until we gain those protections."
I disagree with Dr. Concannon's suggestion as quoted above. We need all sorts of protective legistlation and tort reform, but I do not see how participating in CurrentCare increases your liability in any way. Your liability lies within your house, your systems, your oversight (and trust) of staff within your practice, and your security to keep hackers out. I welcome input from CurrentCare admin (RIQI basically), but my impression is that joining CurrentCare is not a liability to the participating providers.
