One of the strategies that we encourage our clients to consider when implementing EHR access audits is to start with the employee's own record. This approach provides the CE the option of explaining how snooping isn't supposed to happen (when someone is caught), without taking the more heavy-handed approach that should follow other kinds of (snooping) unauthorized access.
