The central Pennsylvania HIMSS office is bringing together top Meaningful Use experts from around the country to host an all-day, jam-packed workshop in York, PA. As an international non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare through information technology, HIMSS recognizes the need to keep health care professionals informed about the ever-changing world of meaningful use. The July 25th workshop is sure to be both informative and game changing for your meaningful use strategy.
Get Real Health’s Senior Healthcare Strategist, Christina Caraballo, is honored to have been selected to speak on the patient engagement panel at the HIMSS Meaningful Use Workshop. Christina plans to share her knowledge and insight about the new 2014 Meaningful Use requirements that obligate all providers and hospitals to implement VDT (view, download and transmit) capacities for patients and drive patients to use these new tools. She will also highlight the challenges and solutions that come along with VDT and review how Meaningful Use goes beyond simply “checking the box” when it comes to organizations’ long-term patient engagement strategy.
Christina will share the panel with Founder and CEO of EHR Explained, Teresa Younkin; Senior Vice President of Policy at Healthwise, Leslie Kelly Hall; and Lead Research Scientist and Lecturer at the George Washington University, Patricia MacTaggert. Additional hot discussions will cover innovative solutions for implementing Stage 2 Meaningful Use in your health care practice, future challenges facing incorporation, and how to make sure your system is auditor-compliant.
But topics discussed at the workshop won’t just apply to experienced health practitioners. Anyone interested in healthcare and patient engagement will leave the workshop satisfied, having received pertinent information about how Meaningful Use will influence the future of healthcare as it moves forward to Stage 2 and beyond. The HIMSS Meaningful Use Workshop will help you make key decisions as you implement Meaningful Use strategies with the goal of improving healthcare quality, care coordination, public and population health and improving engagement with patients and families.
