Electronic Health Record Safety Act

FAIR in Medicine Model Legislation:
Electronic Health Records Safety

Currently, there is no standard way to indicate a person’s biological sex in electronic health records.  Some US healthcare systems allow patients to register as the gender they identify with, rather than their biological sex, potentially resulting in medical errors.  We propose legislation that requires healthcare providers to record both biological sex alongside other important information about gender identity, to decrease risk to patients.
