Event Date: Friday, April 26, 2013 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Event Type: Webinar/Online Event

Description

This webinar will focus on how safety net providers can electronically exchange health information and achieve interoperability using electronic health records (EHRs).  Exchanging electronic health information with other providers is a requirement under Stage 2 of Meaningful Use and has been shown to reduce costs and duplication of services, increase patient engagement, enhance patient safety, and improve healthcare quality. Presenters for this webinar will focus on the following topics:

  • How providers can meet the health information exchange (HIE)  objectives of Meaningful Use:
  • How providers can access and utilize State and local HIE networks; and
  • How providers can overcome barriers to achieve HIE and interoperability.

Participants can register here.
