AHDI’s National Leadership Board approved the association’s endorsement of safe practice recommendations for copy and paste to be published by the ECRI Institute and the Partnership for Health IT Patient Safety. The four recommendations will be formally released the week of February 29, 2016. The recommendations are as follows:
Recommendation A: Provide a mechanism to make copy and paste material easily identifiable.
Recommendation B: Ensure that the provenance of copy and paste material is readily available.
Recommendation C: Ensure adequate staff training and education regarding the appropriate and safe use of copy and paste.
Recommendation D: Ensure that copy and paste practices are regularly monitored, measured, and assessed.
