Description: While many hospitals have put in place plans to meet Stage 1 Meaningful Use objectives, the hurdles for Stages 2 and 3 are expected to be considerably higher. The challenge for hospitals is to implement applications in a way that creates an environment that yields voluntary physician adoption of CPOE, medication reconciliation and physician documentation, while at the same time improves hospital operations and the quality of care.
In this webinar, PatientKeeper will present strategies to achieve Meaningful Use by aligning patient, physician and hospital priorities. PatientKeeper also will provide an overview of CPOE, medication reconciliation, and physician documentation capabilities that can overlay existing HIS systems in a hospital to create a work environment for physicians that streamlines and improves their existing workflow.
In this educational webinar, presented by HIMSS, attendees will hear from a physician, a director of implementation, and a healthcare IT CEO about:
• How to position your hospital for the fast-approaching Stages 2 and 3 of Meaningful Use
• Implementation strategies to accelerate physician adoption of MU-related applications
• How to rapidly implement advanced clinical applications that will deliver value well beyond Meaningful Use
