BOSTON, Aug. 6 The Center for Business Intelligence (CBI), a division of Advanstar Communications, is pleased to announce their full agenda which includes Dr. Paul Tang, Vice President and Chief Medical Information Officer, Palo Alto Medical Foundation, as the keynote speaker for the inaugural Access Federal Stimulus Incentives for Electronic Health Records Conference. The forum will take place at the Hilton in Alexandria, VA, on September 24-25, 2009.
CBI's speaker faculty always includes the country's leading experts and practitioners in healthcare, and the keynote presentation addressing "Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records to Achieve Health Reform" will be a highlight at this timely and relevant event. State and local strategies to capitalize on federal stimulus incentives and implement sustainable models for health information exchange will be thoroughly examined, and case study examples of innovative pilots in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Arizona, Indiana, New York and Maine will also be presented.
Other opportune sessions include:
-- Understanding Health IT Privacy and Security Provisions in the Stimulus Legislation
-- How to Capture Every Single Dollar of Stimulus Money
-- Certification of Electronic Health Records Systems
-- Regional Health IT Extension Centers
-- Financial Incentives Under Medicare and Medicaid
-- Quality Reporting and "Meaningful Use of Health IT"
-- Real World Look at Successful Strategies for Implementing and Using EHRs in a Hospital Setting
The conference is the industry's best opportunity to learn about EHRs that have already been built and implemented -- the true building blocks of healthcare reform. America's Affordable Health Choices Act was approved by the House Energy and Commerce Committee last week and will face a full House vote when Congress returns from summer recess. While there is still much to debate and vote on before consensus occurs, our nation is closer to President Obama's goal of healthcare reform and delegates will find the educational sessions and networking opportunities at this conference more valuable than ever.
