Class of '82 Webinar
Understanding How to Utilize Technology to Improve Communication between Doctors and Patients
Monday, December 4, 8:30-9:30 pm EST
In 2011 a new program called "Meaningful Use" was created. This program provided incentive funds for Doctors and Hospitals to implement Health Information Technology. This technology has had a significant impact on the practice of medicine in the United States. Some feel the impact has been positive, others disagree.
Over the past few years the program has changed, and the current focus of the program is to encourage better doctor to doctor communication and doctor to patient communication. Two of the officers of the Class of '82 are doctors who have implemented Health Information Technology and one has been involved in various organizations that have helped to shape these programs. They will share their perspectives on the impact of the program.
Registrants will be sent the webinar information via email a few days before the event. We will have time for questions and discussion from the attendees.
