SAFER-4 System Configuration

SAFER-4 System Configuration

A Resource Developed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology

The System Configuration SAFER Guide identifies recommended safety practices associated with the way EHR hardware and software are set up (“configured”). EHR configuration includes the creation and maintenance of the physical environment in which the system will operate, as well as the implementation of the required hardware and software infrastructure.

Working through this guide with a multi-disciplinary team will focus the team’s attention on configuration-related recommended practices to optimize the safety and safe use of the EHR.
