Overview: The webinar topic will be a presentation and analysis of the key advantages and disadvantages of current electronic medical records systems for providers, hospitals, patients, and other stakeholders, the unanticipated problems and issues, a discussion of emerging evidence-based approaches to improving the implementation, effectiveness, and ease of use of EMRs, and a discussion of what the future holds for the further evolution of EMRs. The anticipated benefits of those who designed EMRs included: improved billing and coding accuracy, improved quality of care and outcomes, saved time for busy physicians, decrease costs of care, and active engagement of patients in their care.

Although these benefits have been largely realized in some delivery settings, many physicians and other providers continue to be frustrated with the typical disadvantages of EMRs: 

Why should you Attend: Although EMRs have been shown to have positive impacts on health care and outcomes and are increasingly being required or incentivized by federal and other payers of care, many physicians and other health care providers are increasingly concerned and frustrated with the perceived negative factors: steep initial and ongoing costs, increased training and documentation time, implementation difficulties, how to comply with payer requirements, patient privacy concerns, and intrusion in the provider-patient relationships, among others.

This webinar will discuss and address both the positive and negative aspects of EMRs and provide advice concerning effective techniques or approaches for enhancing the positive aspects and managing or reducing the impact of the EMR barriers or issues on health care providers, patients, payers, quality improvement professionals, researchers, and other key stakeholder groups. The presentation will also provide key insights concerning what the future of EMRs' use in the health system holds and how providers and other stakeholders can effectively prepare for this evolution and its associated changes.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Current status of EMR implementation in healthcare
EMR strengths and weaknesses (e.g., improved legibility, continuity, and access, enhanced prevention, but privacy and security issues, lack of interoperability, not user friendly, excessive documentation time)
Examples of effective approaches for using EMRs more effectively and engaging patients
Discussion of healthcare settings where EMRs have been most effective and why (what contextual factors are essential to implementation success)
Description and discussion of the changes that must be made in the near future to more fully realize the full promise of EMRs in enhancing patient care, making providers more efficient and more satisfied in their work, engaging patients in their care, enhancing the provider-patient relationship, improving efficiency and reducing costs, improving patient outcomes, protecting patient privacy, and providing data useful in quality of care measurement, outcomes research, and population health
Question and answer time will be provided to allow the audience to discuss their experiences, share insights, and ask relevant questions

Who Will Benefit:
Physicians and other Providers
Hospital Information Technology Leaders in Health Settings
Case Managers
Health Plans and other Payers
Quality Improvement Specialists
Epidemiologists and Outcome Researchers
