iHealth Alliance, a nonprofit organization that represents the interests of healthcare providers and their malpractice insurance companies, launched a website to track safety issues related to the use and implementation of electronic health records.

Insurance companies and the Food & Drug Administration plan to use information collected on the system, called EHRevent, to develop educational literature regarding patient safety and EHRs.

Malpractice insurance companies, also known as professional liability carriers, are among the "strongest supporters" of the EHRevent system, according to iHealth Alliance.
