Seminar Overview

Few topics have received more attention in recent years than U.S. healthcare and how to collect, manage, share and protect health information in ways that lead to improved patient care, more efficient medical record-keeping, and reduced costs.  Current health information systems are antiquated, not integrated, expensive to maintain, and replete with inaccuracies.

Every patient, healthcare provider, and insurer has examples of where the “system” is broken, but how to move forward is uncertain. Although technology is not the complete  answer, appropriate application of today’s tools and computing strategies can directly support solutions under development.

Attendees are encouraged to engage the dialogue and address:

  • Technology trends in health IT—what’s making an impact
  • Where we are today with Electronic Health Records
  • Examples of how technology can and does improve patient care
  • Common mistakes made by health professionals and how IT can help to avoid them
  • Advances in secure health information sharing—with a focus on protecting personally-identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI)

In addition, meet Dr. Thomas Lee, Network President, Partners Healthcare System, Boston and co-author of Chaos and Organization in Health Care. This is your opportunity to hear first-hand about recommended strategies for electronic medical records and information systems for sharing knowledge, team-based care, and disease management initiatives. The first 100 attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Dr. Lee’s book and are invited to the closing networking reception to meet the author and have him sign their copy.
