    Collecting and Understanding Electronic Medical Records in Litigation

    Webinar CLE -Zoom


    Electronic Medical Records (EMR) are governed by a strict regulatory framework, but they contain remarkably detailed information that is important in a wide variety of cases from malpractice to fraud to criminal prosecution. This data is frequently produced in paper or PDF reports, leaving much of the potentially relevant data behind. This presentation discusses the types of information that are contained in EMR systems and how to approach discovery requests to comply with the law and avoid missing responsive data. Using examples from actual cases, many of which our experts worked on directly, we discuss the ways parties withhold, modify, or obfuscate electronic medical record data, and how to ensure it is all collected or produced.

    Identification and Preservation of Electronically Stored Information

    Webinar CLE -Zoom

    Link to register for zoom (required) and

    materials will be sent out 1-2 days prior to program. 


    Electronically stored information (ESI) in litigation has changed significantly in recent years. Once almost exclusively digitized paper records and email archives, the varieties of ESI have multiplied exponentially. Similarly, the locations where ESI are stored are more numerous than ever, including mobile, cloud, and IoT. The result is a complex effort to find and collect relevant data in whatever location or format it is stored. This presentation covers these technical topics from the perspective of the legal practitioner, highlighting the key factors an attorney should consider ensuring that all relevant data has been identified and preserved. 

    *Pending approval for 1 hour CLE in KS.
