SAFER-1 High Priority Practices
A Resource Developed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology
The High Priority Practices SAFER Guide identifies “high risk” and “high priority” recommended safety practices intended to optimize the safety and safe use of EHRs. It broadly addresses the EHR safety concerns discussed in greater detail in the other eight SAFER Guides.
Assembling a multi-disciplinary safety team is recommended to complete this guide, as a team will be best equipped to identify which EHR-related safety practices should be addressed first and which of the other SAFER Guides to turn to next.
