  "Using an Electronic Health Record for Health Information Exchange and Interoperability for Safety Net Providers" 

Friday, April 26, 2013,2:00 PM EDT

This webinar will focus on how safety net providers can electronically exchange health information and achieve interoperability using electronic health records (EHRs).

Presenters for this webinar will focus on the following topics:
  • How providers can meet the health information exchange (HIE) objectives of Meaningful Use;
  • How providers can access and utilize State and local HIE networks; and
  • How providers can overcome barriers to achieve HIE and interoperability
Presenters include:
  • Katherine Koch, Health IT Specialist
    Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
  • Anuj Desai, Vice President of Market Development
    New York eHealth Collaborative
  • Rachael Williams, Health IT Specialist
