REDWOOD MEDNET PRESENTS THE SIXTH ANNUAL
Connecting California to Improve Patient Care in 2012
Practical Solutions for Health Information Exchange and Quality Analytics
Connecting California to Improve Patient Care is an annual conference featuring subject matter experts on electronic health records (EHR), personal health records (PHR) and health information exchange (HIE). Presentations, discussions and demonstrations will focus on practical solutions for securely sharing electronic clinical information between unaffiliated health care facilities, such as outpatient practices, hospitals, laboratories, imaging centers, long term care, home health, and public health. Conference attendees will learn best practices in clinical informatics, quality analytics, and HIE. Speakers will explain the current status of ARRA investments in health information technology (IT) in California, national software roadmaps for standards and interoperability, innovations in quality improvement, and emerging tools and opportunities for physician and patient engagement.
In addition to the Education Sessions in the main ballroom, Redwood MedNet will also host California Connects, a two day Interoperability Exhibition co-sponsored by Cal eConnect. California Connects will feature EHRs and HIEs demonstrating practical and currently available interoperability standards as well as showing pilot instances of new national standards for health information exchange.
