Monday, June 13, 2011 at 1:00 PM ET
Since the original release of A Clinician's Guide to e-Prescribing, the health care environment has changed dramatically. Recently, five partner organizations released an updated 2011 edition of the Guide. This "how-to" guide helps health care professionals make informed decisions about how and when to transition from paper to e-prescribing systems. This webinar will present an overview of the guide components, including information on the changing healthcare information technology (HIT) environment.
The webinar and Guide is the result of a collaborative effort by the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American College of Physicians (ACP), the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), e-Health Initiative (e-HI), and the Center for Improving Medication Management (CIMM).The webinar will take place Monday, June 13, 2011 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET.
