Digital Health Innovation Forum 5: Making Electronic Health Records Work Together for You
Tuesday, October 6, 2015 – 5:30-7:30pm – Sprint Accelerator
Free – RSVP Now
In 2009, the government began pumping tens of billions to health providers to dump paper and go digital. As a result, lifesaving data started becoming easier for doctors and hospitals to access.
Yet even today, when you walk into a doctor’s office for the first time, your own latest, most detailed health information may not come with you — at least, not in digital form.
Even though electronic records are supposed to be the norm, health information exchange systems — the entities which provide access to the data for health care providers across the community – still face challenges. And instead of digital records, practitioners may end up with printouts, faxes, and sub-optimal scanned documents.
This costs not only money, but creates the potential loss of critical information about your health.
On October 6, 2015, from 5:30-7:30pm at the Sprint Accelerator, KC Digital Drive invites you to come hear from the leaders of the Kansas City area’s three biggest health information exchanges on this question, which affects not only practitioners but you, the consumer.
This free event is part of KC Digital Drive’s quarterly Digital Health Innovation Forum, a series of open public talks on digital health issues that matter to providers, entrepreneurs, innovators, and patients. Please RSVP to attend.
