Register for free at http://tinyurl.com/p3nxmq9

 

Intro:

Electronic Health Records are only one part of the complex Health IT picture. A larger issue is getting separate EHR systems to work together to connect disparate health information. In this webinar we will hear from two speakers who are involved in this challenge from different perspectives. Dr. Minakshi Tikoo from UCONN Health will be talking about the challenges of health information exchange in the state of Connecticut and some possible solutions. Simone Myrie from the federal Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT will be talking about an initiative designed to help patients manage their own health information.

 

Presenters:

Minakshi Tikoo –

“Reality of health information Exchanges  and Interoperability – a Case study of Connecticut”

This talk will cover the following 1) a broad over view of HITECH Act, comprised of grants from CMS and ONC. 2) A summary of challenges with HIT (covering both HIE and adoption of EHRs) 3) A little dose of reality from the perspective of what it takes to implement and what the challenges are. Lastly, covering what might be some policy and or payment reform that might help.

Simone Myrie –

“Patient Empowerment via eHealth & the Blue Button Initiative” 

Summary of presentation: As policy changes continues to move our health care systems towards being digital, this presents exciting and new opportunities for providers to engage with their patients or their caregivers in a rich way. Find out how the Blue Button Initiative led by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT, HHS and private sector supporters are increasing consumer access to their health information. Consumer ehealth is changing the way patients are able to manage their health and communicate and collaborate with their care teams. All however have a role in educating consumers about their right to access their information, how and the value it presents.
