Electronic Health Records: Where Do We Go From Here?

Electronic Health Records: Where Do We Go From Here?

Friday, February 5, 2010

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

Presented by the New York Academy of Sciences and the Center for Advanced Information Management, Columbia University


The conference topic - electronic health records (EHR) - is an important issue that has been brought to the forefront of national emphasis by both government and industry. It has been proposed that the use of EHR will improve healthcare delivery and reduce costs and medical errors. The goals of this forum include creating dialogue about the latest EHR developments; to inform delegates about new innovations; to provide an opportunity for expert developers and users to discuss their problems and brainstorm solutions; and to provide networking opportunities between leaders in this field that may lead to future collaborations.
