Meaningful Use and Beyond: Health Software etc.

A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Friday 9th March, 2012

2:30pm to 2:50pm (CST)

What is an Electric Health Record (EHR)? In the HITECH Act, the Federal Government both answered the question and rendered it moot. They created a new term, "meaningful use." An EHR is that which can achieve meaningful use. But for SXSW, the important thing to understand is that pervasive EHR technology along with protocol-driven healthcare data exchange will serve to create the a new consistent "Operating System" and "Internet" for healthcare. Learn what you need to do to become a health IT geek; and profit.
