Proponents have argued that the full utilization of electronic health records will serve to improve patient care, increase patient safety, and simplify compliance and regulation of the US healthcare system and save money. All this may occur if the roadblocks to success are identified and appropriately handled. Does the science bear this out? The federal government is injecting billions of dollars into this experiment with the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act).
This conference will focus the national spotlight on Indiana and explore the legislation and the standards for meaningful use of health information by engaging Indiana stakeholders in a discussion of Indiana's role in the national dialogue surrounding the generation and effective use of health information. The conference will examine the current status in Indiana, opportunities for advancement and the impact of meaningful use upon patients, providers, taxpayers, researchers, insurers, regulators and other stakeholders.
