An Introduction to the eDiscovery Process

E-Discovery is the process of collecting and exchanging electronically stored information (ESI) that is requested during the discovery phase in civil litigation. The need for a well devised e-Discovery process for litigation stems from the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), as several of these rules directly impact the e-Discovery process. The Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) was developed in 2005 to help create best practices and guidelines for attorneys, e-Discovery vendors, and anyone working within the e-Discovery field. The EDRM project has become the de-facto standard for navigating through the e-Discovery process and helping to adhere to the federal laws governing it. Further information regarding the EDRM model and projects can be found at www.edrm.net. Read More

The effects of these decisions can be noticed for years to come by the hospital staff, the community, and individuals responsible for those decisions. Read More
