HIT Exchange Executive Webcast and Live Chat: Lessons learned from a health care CIO — University of Pennsylvania’s EHR implementation
Selecting and implementing an electronic health record (EHR) are priorities among health care providers, while paying attention to federal initiatives such as the meaningful use incentive program and HIPAA regulations are a must. Just what goes into such a process? From clinical workflow to calculating a total cost of ownership, the EHR implementation process requires input and decision making at all levels.
Andre Jenkins, entity information officer for the hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, discusses all these steps – and more of what went into Penn Medicine’s efforts – in this HIT Exchange webcast. Learn how to ask the right questions of vendors, determine what’s best for patients and understand technology infrastructure needs.
