October 18, 2006, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Michael Shrift, MD, MBA, CMIO, Centura Health, and Michael Mignoli, MD, Denver. Dr. Shrift describes how Centura Health decided upon and implemented a practical connectivity strategy for their private practice physician community in this 12 hospital health system. Dr. Shrift discusses the challenges, decision points and lessons learned on the health system side. Dr. Mignoli, a busy internal medicine private practice physician, provides a glimpse into why obtaining electronic feeds directly into his EMR is so important to him, how this practical, high impact approach to connectivity has affected his private practice, and how connectivity has affected utilization and impacted patient care.
