8 vendors sign on to new EHR Developer Code of Conduct

Eight EHR vendors have agreed to a new set of industry principles set forth by the Electronic Health Record Association.

The Electronic Health Record Association introduced the first version of its EHR Developer Code of Conduct in June 2013. The code of conduct covers general business practices, while also encouraging EHR developers to commit to interoperability, patient safety, security and usability.

This second version of the EHR Developer Code of Conduct comes after discussions with Electronic Health Record Association members and stakeholder groups, who provided feedback on the initial code.

The vendors who have already signed on to the new code of conduct include Allscripts, Cerner, Epic, GE Healthcare Digital, McKesson, Medhost and NextGen Healthcare.
