ASTHO-NACCHO Webinar – Exploring the Use of Electronic Health Records to Support Tobacco Cessation and Million Hearts
Exploring the Use of Electronic Health Records to Support Tobacco Cessation and Million Hearts
Date: Monday, April 13, 2015, 1:00-2:30 PM ET
Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States. The use of electronic health records can play an important role in improving health by supporting tobacco cessation efforts.
This webinar, hosted by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) will explore and identify opportunities for using electronic health records (EHRs) to improve two of the ABCS of Million Hearts: smoking cessation efforts and improving blood pressure control. Furthermore, we will provide an overview and national perspective of EHR use, state and local examples, and available resources to support these efforts.
The intended audience for this webinar includes state health agencies, local health agencies and community based clinics.
