The theme for the 2006 Congress on Healthcare Leadership is ...Gaining Momentum. I've mentioned it in an earlier posts, but want to revisit the fact that Holt Anderson from North Carolina and I are presenting on the topic of establishing a regional health information organization at this conference, which is attended by at least 4,500 healthcare administrators.
For the last couple of years I have wanted to see a gain in momentum with hospital administrators becoming more aware and supportive of community collaborations to electronically exchange health information for the improvement of healthcare quality, safety, efficiency and access. While administrators are becoming more and more involved, we still have room for improvement!
So, if you are planning to attend Congress this year and want to learn more about how you can support the national health information infrastructure, consider signing up for session #87 Establishing a Regional Health Information Organization. If you had not planned to attend, but want to learn more about the educational sessions at Congress visit the online brochure and/or share it with others.
