Matthew Keris Authors Book, "Electronic Medical Records and Litigation"

September 12, 2014

Matthew P. Keris, shareholder in our Scranton office,  has authored the book, Electronic Medical Records and Litigation, published this month by Thomson Reuters Legal.

The book is a brand new offering from the legal publisher that provides attorneys, physicians, health care claims professionals, risk managers and virtually every member of the health care community with an overview of the emerging legal issues surrounding Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) in medical negligence cases.

"The adoption and implementation of EMRs has dramatically altered the landscape of the health care profession," said Keris. "Years of medical documentation standards and practices based on handwritten records will soon become obsolete. My book is intended to provide guidelines to industry practitioners as we enter this previously uncharted area of litigation."

Keris joined Marshall Dennehey's Health Care Department in 2005, where he represents physicians, medical groups and health care institutions in a variety of health care liability matters. He lectures nationally and writes extensively on litigation issues pertaining to the use of EMRs.

He serves as President of the Pennsylvania Defense Institute and is additionally a member of the Pennsylvania and Lackawanna County Bar Associations, the Pennsylvania Association for Health Care Risk Management, American Society for Health Risk Management, and the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance. A graduate of Shippensburg University and Roger Williams University School of Law, he is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and New York.
