Health information technology (or HIT) is touted by many to help practices cut costs, but can also be daunting to consider. Host John Lynn, founder of EMRandHIPAA.com, addresses some of the most common questions about HIT with guests from the Practice Fusion Connect User Conference in San Francisco, on November 5, 2010. How can clinicians implement new technologies without going over budget or disrupting the flow of their practices? What are some questions to ask when shopping for an electronic health record (or EHR) system, and what do clinicians need to know about EHR incentives as well as qualifying for meaningful use?
Featured guests include:
- Camille Williams, practice manager from ENT Associates of South Atlanta in Marietta, Georgia
- Ken Harrington, practice manager from Washington Endocrine Clinic in Washington, DC
- Robert Rowley, MD, chief medical officer of Practice Fusion
