Discovering the New Frontier of Syndromic Surveillance: A Meaningful Use Dialogue

In preparation for the March release of the preliminary recommendation for PHSS guidelines for using inpatient and ambulatory clinical care EHR data, ISDS has developed the Meaningful Use Webinar Series called "Discovering the New Frontier of Syndromic Surveillance: A Meaningful Use Dialogue." This series will run weekly for the month of March.

The purpose of this series is to inform ISDS members and Meaningful Use stakeholders about various topics relating to Meaningful Use implementations using inpatient and ambulatory data and to engage stakeholders in the development of the recommendation. A series of experts will share their experience-based knowledge about topics ranging from Electronic Health Record technology to local, state, and national EHR implementations that meaningfully use inpatient and ambulatory clinical care data. 

By the end of the series, audience members will be able to provide informed commentary on the preliminary recommendations. This stakeholder commentary will then be used by the ISDS Meaningful Use Workgroup to develop provisional recommendations. 

The first webinar in this series will be a discussion of inpatient and ambulatory electronic health record (EHR) technology. Michelle Siefert from Cerner Corporation and Corey Spears from McKesson Corporation will discuss and identify core EHR components as well as common challenges surrounding data access and quality. This webinar will also focus on specifics of the business purpose of EHR technology and how EHR implementation needs may differ by setting. This webinar kick-start the series on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST.
