4214.0 EHRs and PHRs: Opportunities for Improving Patient Safety Among Vulnerable Populations

Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 12:30 PM
Patients suffering from injury or illness that cause severe pain can benefit from more robust PHRs. HIT innovations are making that possible, potentially simplifying care coordination for these patients across care settings. This session will highlight specific technologies in this space.
Session Objectives: At the end of this session, participants should be able to: 1. explain how more robust PHRs can help patients and providers manage spinal cord injury; 2. identify ways to improve EHRs so that emergency rooms can more effectively treat pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
