February 16 - National HIT Initiatives and the Changing Landscape of Medical Technology

This month’s ATTC iTraining is hosted by Southeast ATTC and presented by Dr. Dominic Mack, MD, MBA.  The landscape of the US healthcare system will be forever changed through policy revisions and technology. Over the past few years there have been significant federal initiatives to incentivize providers to adopt Health Information Technology. As providers move to adopt EHR, there are incentives as well as obstacles which must be considered as the country moves to improve the quality of care for the population. This presentation will discuss some of these national initiatives and how they may affect your practice and the future of health care in your community.
