Central Illinois Electronic Health Records Summit Coming in April;,Medical Conference Offered In Three Central Illinois Locations
Date:3/22/2010

The Central Illinois Electronic Health Records Summit will be offered at three different locations in central Illinois in mid-April. The conference will help healthcare professionals learn how to access economic stimulus funds to implement electronic health record systems in their medical practice. The summit is jointly sponsored by Quality Quest for Health of Illinois and the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria and is free to attendees.

Peoria, IL (Vocus) March 22, 2010 -- Quality Quest for Health of Illinois and the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria are jointly sponsoring a conference on electronic health records entitled, “Central Illinois EHR/HIE Summit: Modernizing Communication to Improve Patient Care” on three separate dates in mid-April from 8:00 a.m. to noon. The half-day conference will be held:

 
  • April 20 – I Hotel and Conference Center, Champaign
  • April 21 – Embassy Suites Riverfront Conference Center, East Peoria
  • April 22 – Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, Normal

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), passed in February 2009, established substantial investments in health information technology. These investments are aimed at using technology to spur advances in healthcare quality, but many practitioners have questioned, “Is this too much, too fast?” The Central Illinois EHR/HIE Summit will focus on:

 
  • how the coming changes can impact patient care;
  • what physicians will need to do in order to access stimulus dollars; and
  • where support is being provided throughout the transition to electronic health records and health information exchange.

Physicians, residents, medical students, nurses, allied health professionals, administrators, practice managers, and business/community leaders are encouraged to attend. There is no cost to attend the conference and a complimentary breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. Registration is required – either online at www.qualityquest.org or by phone at 1-800-977-9670. For more information, please call 309-202-1599.
