Tech talk tomorrow, Modern Healthcare Topics: Health Information Technology with Brent Orndorff
As the US Healthcare system undergoes sweeping fundamental reform it’s becoming imperative to remain informed on recent changes and emerging trends for the successful practice of medicine. Many advances in health information technology, informatics, and data analysis have the potential to empower physicians and improve patient care and population health overall. Doctors now have new views available for the health of their patients and new methods to engage their patients inciting an active role in improving personal health.
This lecture will cover several relevant topics that should be of concern for the practice of modern medicine by the 21st century physician, and many of which are now being introduced into widespread medical education in the United States. As technology enables new resources, tools and abilities it is becoming increasingly critical to keep a finger on the pulse of the rapid advances in the domains of health information technology and informatics.
