Health-IT COI webinar series
Session I: “Understanding the role of RECs”, Wed, Jan 25, 2-3 pm
As key speaker for next Wednesday’s webinar we have Jeff Loughlin, who serves as the Director for the Regional Extension Center of New Hampshire. He also serves as a Project Director with the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative, working with providers, practice leaders, medical and administrative staffs to ensure successful adoption and “meaningful use” of EHR technology in the medical office environment.
RECs (Regional Extension Centers) are authorized by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This was signed into law on February 17, 2009, to promote the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology.
RECs were established to support and serve primary care clinicians and other health care providers, helping them to quickly become adept and meaningful users of electronic health records (EHRs).
