NeHC University Hosts ONC for Two New Programs
NeHC University features ONC in two new programs next week.
On Wednesday, May 2 at 3:30pm ET NeHC University welcomes Claudia Williams, Director of the State HIE Program at ONC, for an hour-long discussion of ONC's recently-released national HIE strategy. Williams will address the current environment of exchange, including cost of exchange, payment models, and various approaches to exchange. She will then go on to discuss ONC's role in fostering exchange as well as how it can be advanced in 2012 and beyond. She will also discuss the strides made to enable exchange through meaningful use and what challenges lie ahead. Click here to register.
On Thursday, May 3 at 12:00pm ET ONC will again join us for a look at the patients’ role in improving the quality of information in their electronic record. In this program, the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago will discuss its environmental scan on the role of patient engagement to improve data quality of EHRs. The presentation will include an overview of the issues of data quality of medical records (paper and electronic) and the significant need to evaluate the role patients can potentially play for data quality improvement.
Other topics that will be covered include a look at patient portals that large provider systems currently use to collect feedback from patients and examples of customer feedback tools from other industries. The presentation will conclude with next steps providers can take to understand and evaluate feedback mechanisms drawing from conclusions of the study. Click here to register.
