Electronic Discovery and Medical Records

Listen to Karin Roberts, a litigation support specialist based in Indianapolis, Indiana with the law firm of Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman, P.C and Karl Schieneman, Director of Legal Analytics and Review at JurInnov, discuss the world of medical organizations and electronic records management and electronic discovery. At Hall Render, Karin is responsible for coordinating all Litigation Support technology services for the firm, including in-house processing and production of electronic discovery. Prior to joining Hall Render, Karin worked in electronic discovery and electronic records management with Eli Lilly & Co as the Corporate Electronic Discovery Coordinator. She has been active in The Sedona Conference Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production (WG1), International Legal Technology Association (ILTA), the Association of Litigation Support Professionals (ALSP), and Women in eDiscovery (WiE).

In this program we will discuss electronic discovery in general and how effective records management impacts e-discovery. We will then delve into the unique issues facing hospitals and other healthcare organizations as they implement electronic records management programs to get a better handle on delivering health care solutions to patients. With these efforts come more exposure to the world of electronic discovery. Of course, hospital records have the added complexity of privacy protections such as HIPPA and other state laws. There are also a number of complex database issues. This should be a very interesting podcast and one of the first programs in the country to analyze this topic.
