Our January meeting of Health TechNet was held on Friday, January 22nd, at Nelson Mullins’ offices in Washington, D.C.
The feature topic was a discussion , led by Jim Oakes of HCIC, of the state of implanting electronic health records. Health systems and providers have made massive investments in EHR technology over the past few years, but many are struggling to see real value from those systems. Our January program featured several industry experts who discussed how providers have been able to get true financial and clinical value from these systems and what needs to be done to make further improvements.
We also started off the new year with some discussion on health care legislation and regulatory activity expected in Congress, in the Executive Branch and on the campaign trail
