Essential Knowledge Series: Trends in Outpatient Practice Management and EMR Solution Adoption

Sep 12, 2016 12:00pm - 1:00pm CDT

Physician practices have gone through an unprecedented level of healthcare IT investment and implementation over the last 10 years with the help of government incentives and healthcare software vendors, bringing the outpatient arena to near universal adoption of practice management and electronic health record solutions.  However, there are still challenges that physician practices face and there are still opportunities available to healthcare vendors across the outpatient market.


HIMSS Analytics has recently completed their Outpatient Essentials Brief on Practice Management (PM) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) Solutions. The study provides a view of the U.S. outpatient market and highlights the benefits and challenges organizations face today.  Speakers Brendan FitzGerald, Director of Research, and Matt Schuchardt, Director of Market Intelligence Solutions, will provide a high level review of trends in this topic area.  Additionally, they will provide additional detail and analysis based upon data from LOGIC™, the HIMSS Analytics market intelligence tool, for the U.S. outpatient market and what it will mean for physician practices moving forward.
