Los Angeles County To Set Up EHRs for Detained Youths
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved spending $17 million to create an electronic health record system for youths who are detained by the county in juvenile camps and halls. The county Probation Department has been under fire from the U.S. Justice Department for poor medical record keeping for detained youths. The system will be operational within 15 to 18 months, Probation Department Chief Information Officer Fred Nazarbegian said.
