Jones, PhD, Associate Information Scientist at the RAND Corporation. The AHRQ “Guide to Reducing Unintended Consequences of Electronic Health Records”, available at , is an online resource providing practical, troubleshooting knowledge and resources to help practices and entire organizations anticipate, avoid, and address problems that can occur during implementation and use of an EHR. Drs. Harrison and Jones, The Guide’s developers, alert listeners to the wide range of unintended consequences that can emerge during EMR implementation. They also explain how users can act before and during implementation to monitor emerging developments and deal with ones that may cause serious harm or create risks, and provide an overview of how to use the Guide before and during EHR implementation.
