Congratulations to Sharona Hoffman (CWRU Law) on the recent publication of her new book on Electronic Health Records and Medical Big Data with CUP.
Here's a quick summary for anyone interested in taking a look: This book helps readers gain an in-depth understanding of electronic health record (EHR) systems, medical big data, and the regulations that govern them. It analyzes both the shortcomings and benefits of EHR systems, exploring the law's response to the adoption of these systems and highlighting gaps in the current legal framework. It also develops detailed recommendations for regulatory, policy, and technological improvements to enhance EHR systems’ safety, security, and efficacy for both clinical and secondary (such as research) uses. Electronic Health Records and Medical Big Data addresses not only privacy and security concerns but also other important challenges, such as those associated with data quality and data analysis. The book can serve as a primer for students and a resource for knowledgeable professionals and academics.
