Siemens signs on to EHR code of conduct

Siemens Healthcare said it has adopted the electronic health record (EHR) developer code of conduct developed by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).

The code establishes principles for industry that commit it to the support of safe healthcare delivery, the recognition of the impact that EHRs have for patients, and a promise to operate with a high level of integrity.

Commitments to product design, development, and implementation in support of patient safety are included in the code, Siemens said, adding that before the company adopted the code, it upheld many of its requirements, particularly the development of safe products. The company's quality management system is in compliance with the code and is certified to recognize international standards ISO 9001 and ISO 13485. Siemens said it has also supported the development of a learning healthcare system as required in the code.
