Last month, I was happy to have presented my first Webinar for the NER. It was great to have almost 40 members participate. Due to that success, we are adding more webinars to the schedule. All three webinars start at 10:00 am and run to 11:00am with an additional half hour before and after for questions.

Google Health Basics
“Better health comes from better information.”
Google Health is designed to help you organize, track, monitor, and act on your health information. You can manage all your health information online. You can also set personal health goals such as losing weight, lowering blood pressure, and even tracking your sleep patterns.

Twitter in Hospitals
IM? That is SO 2004!” Are you stuck in the past? Stay ahead of the curve with Twitter! Twitter is a free social networking tool, allowing you to stay connected with people in “real time”. Unlike IM, Twitter allows you to post quick notes and read other users’ updates without the intrusive feel of an IM.
In this workshop, we will learn more about Twitter and how hospitals are using it to disseminate information.

Cloud Computing in a Nutshell
You may have heard of having your head in the clouds, but what about your computer? Cloud Computing is a trend that’s taking the world by storm, so to speak. You have probably already done some cloud computing without even knowing it. Do you have a Hotmail or Yahoo! mail account? Do you use Google Docs or Google Calendars? In this webinar, we will learn what Cloud Computing is and have an overview of some of the tools and services available.
