June 22 Webinar: Health Information Technology To Improve Primary Care
Date: June 22
Time: 12-1 p.m. ET
This free Webinar will highlight how primary care practices can use health information technology (IT) to improve quality and patient outcomes, especially related to heart health. The event is part of AHRQ’s EvidenceNOW program, a grant initiative dedicated to helping thousands of small- and medium-sized primary care practices use current evidence to improve cardiovascular care for millions of Americans nationwide.
Despite its potential to improve care, health IT is currently underused in primary care practices. Speakers will highlight incentives and tools that support the use of health IT in quality improvement as well as challenges that may arise in implementation.
