Webinar | How EHRs can propel your hospital toward Meaningful Use and beyond
Now available on-demand
Hosted by: Dan Bowman, Editor, FierceHealthIT
As the next two stages of meaningful use are implemented, EHRs will take on an even greater role than before. You need your EHR system to be as cost effective and efficient as possible and have the capability not only to meet the meaningful use objectives but to function fully. How can you ensure that you’re fully prepared, with all systems and processes in place?
This webinar will provide you with the solutions. We’ll outline where the industry is heading and give you the tools and strategies to take advantage of the changing health IT world. We’ll help you evaluate what you’ll need your EHR system to do for you and how to adapt your current system to meet those needs.
Some of the topics to be discussed include:
How to integrate EHRs with other health IT, such as smart phones, cybermedicine and body area network devices to improve patient care
What kinds of vendors/products are best prepared to implement these systems - and which ones are falling behind
Is the ‘cloud’ of the future worth the hoopla or too risky
How to use the next generation of EHRs to maximize reimbursement from new payment initiatives, even those that haven’t been announced yet
How to use health IT to increase ‘patient-centric’ care, the darling of Stage 3 of meaningful use
