Special Program: The Power of Collaboration

Beacon Communities and EHR Vendors Working Together to Accelerate Interoperability and Exchange

Thursday, July 12, 2012
2:00-3:00PM EDT


LIVE WEBCAST: The Power of Collaboration:

National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC) is excited to partner with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) Beacon Communities program to celebrate two years of innovation and success in advancing health information technology adoption and use.

On July 12, 2012, Beacon Community representatives, EHR vendors and other industry leaders will join Deputy National Coordinator for Programs & Policy Judy Murphy and NeHC CEO Kate Berry for a panel discussion on innovative approaches to address challenges in using information from disparate EHR systems.

Joining forces, Beacon Communities and seven EHR companies (NextGen, Greenway, GE, Allscripts, Vitera, Cerner and SuccessEHS) have come to consensus on the highest priority elements of patient information necessary for a consistent clinical summary document that can be automatically exported to an HIE. This effort will bridge silos and improve workflows, and will move the EHR from a tool used in a single provider site to a resource of important patient information that benefits the entire provider community.
