HSPRD partner Adam Snyder was invited to speak at Advocate Health Care’s Grand Rounds this January on litigation issues facing clinicians in 2018. Adam’s presentation focused on digital sources of liability, including the electronic medical record, and private and public communications. Through a series of real-world examples, the discussion helps clinicians identify best practices for communicating about patient care and embracing new technology, while also understanding the consequences and responsibilities associated with these tools.
Advocate Health Care is one of the largest employers in the Chicago area and is ranked among the nation’s top 10 healthcare systems. Advocate trains medical residents at four different hospitals and in more than a dozen different specialties. Its grand rounds programs are designed to provide residents with opportunities to develop the skills and understanding of medicine and to prepare them to be the leading clinicians of tomorrow.
