Join the Western Pennsylvania HIMSS Chapter for their upcoming chapter event titled, "Beyond Meaningful Use – Challenges faced by experienced clinicians using EMRs." This event will be held on Thursday, October 16th from 3:30-6:00pm EST on the University of Pittsburgh Campus.
Dr. David Eibling, MD surgeon from Veterans Administration in Pittsburgh will present his views on the challenges that emerge once EMRs are implemented. Risk of not finding the right information or misusing information increases as users proficiency in using EMR varies. Frustration in searching through hundreds of encounters to find the information needed emerges. Dr. Eibling has been working with a team designing and testing tools that will simplify clinicians access to information and therefore contribute to minimize errors due to inadequate use of information.
Alberta Guy, RN, BSN, Senior Healthcare Systems Consultant will identify and lead a participant discussion on the challenges and opportunities faces by nursing professionals as EMRs are fully implemented. Participants in the seminar will be encouraged to comment and contribute to the issues identified.
