It's finally here! The long-awaited tipping point for Electronic Medical Records and Health Information Technology has arrived in the form of $19.2 billion in stimulus funds--the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act. Healthcare providers are under the gun to demonstrate 'meaningful use", collect incentive payments, and make the change before the carrots turn into sticks. Come hear how it looks for two companies on the front lines as they craft solutions that work on the front end for doctors and connect on the back end to the many stakeholders of our healthcare system. Some doctors can't wait to join the 21st century, others fight back and threaten to retire. If you have a body or are looking to make a difference in a complex, entrenched market, you need to be at this event!
