5052.0 Implementaion of Care through HIT in States, Health Reform/Finance

Wednesday, November 2, 2011: 8:30 AM
Regional Extension Centers (RECs) have been tasked with helping providers who see priority populations adopt HIT in as expeditious a fashion. Georgia has leveraged their clinical-vendor-academic-policy relationships to get off to a good start in this regard. This session will explore how relationships can help communities build networks that facilitate HIT implementation.
Session Objectives: At the end of this session, participants should be able to: 1. discuss how Regional Extension Centers can help physicians adopt HIT, with Georgia as a case in point; 2. assess the value of provider relationships in increasing the rate of adoption.
