Wednesday, April 25, 2018 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT
Long-term care and post-acute care (LTPAC) providers are a critical component of the US health care system. As patients move between care settings, organizations are increasingly embracing health information technology to help facilitate these transitions. Yet there are questions as to the adoption of health information technology by LTPAC provider organizations. Join us as we hear from a professor at Indiana University as he presents the results of a recent nationwide survey of health IT capabilities in LTPAC facilities in the US and considers the implications of these findings.
