Webinar, From Coverage to Care

 From Coverage to Care: Connecting the Newly Insured to the Health Care System

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 at 2 – 3 PM EST

In April, President Obama announced that more than 8 million people have signed up for health insurance coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Many community organizations, including libraries, will play a role in helping the newly insured understand how to use their new health insurance coverage. This webinar will focus on the information and resources available to help consumers learn about the importance of health insurance and how to appropriately navigate the health care system. Topics will include key terms, how to select a health care provider, when and where to seek health services and why prevention and establishing a medical home with a primary care provider is important.

Presenter:  Jennifer Syria from the Region I External Affairs, Office of the Regional Administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

Librarians Adding Value to EHRs: Infobuttons and Meaningful Use

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Free Health IT Webinar –  

Title: Librarians Adding Value to EHRs: Infobuttons and Meaningful Use

Time:  April 30, 2014, 1:00-2:00 pm, EDT.

Course length:  1.0 hour

Registration Required:  http://tinyurl.com/p3nxmq9

This webinar is the second in a series on ways librarians can add value to electronic health records.  The goals of this webinar are threefold: to give librarians a clear understanding of what infobuttons are and how they work; to deepen their understanding of the needs of clinicians using EHRs; and to highlight requirements for Meaningful Use that may provide opportunities for medical librarians. 

Guilherme Del Fiol, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor, Biomedical Informatics, University of Utah, School of Medicine will present results of a systematic review on clinical questions raised by clinicians and tools that help answer these questions by integrating EHR systems with online knowledge resources. 

He will also discuss how these tools are being disseminated via the “HL7 Context-Aware Knowledge Retrieval Standard” (a.k.a, Infobutton Standard) and the EHR Meaningful Use certification program. 

John Halamka, MD, Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School; Chief Information Officer, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center will review the healthcare IT challenges ahead that medical librarians can help support. Meaningful Use Stage 2 regulations and proposed regulations for Meaningful Use Stage 3 include several requirements for decision support, patient education, and quality metrics, all of which benefit from knowledge services curated by medical librarians. 

This webinar was organized by a team of three librarians.  Evelyn B. Morgen, director of the Lyman Maynard Stowe Library, University of Connecticut Health Center,  Jennifer D. Miglus, (librarian at LM Stowe library,) and Douglas L. Varner, (Senior Associate Director and Chief Biomedical Informationist at the Dahlgren Memorial Library, Georgetown University Medical Center) invited and coordinated with the speakers.  This webinar could not have been produced without the invaluable technical support of Meredith Solomon and the staff of NNLM/NER.
