Birmingham, Ala. (PRWEB) August 10, 2008
MEDSEEK, the leading provider of enterprise portal connectivity solutions, announced today that Dr. Asim Masood of William Osler Health Centre and Dr. Jay Wallin of Mount Carmel Health System will present a Webinar in the monthly educational series reThinking eHealth. The session, titled "Give the Providers What They What: Two physicians share ways their facilities have improved provider satisfaction," will take place on Wednesday August 27th at 2pm EDT, 11am PDT.
For this Webinar, Dr. Masood, Deputy Chief of Staff at William Osler, will share with you his experience as an ER physician accessing clinical data as well communicating and educating the Physician Community with the latest and greatest information from the organization. Through the implementation of the Virtual Medical Office, branded MDNet at William Osler, physicians truly have one-stop shopping for access to clinical applications, a census list for patients they are treating and administrative policies and procedures, all personalized to that specific provider. Dr. Masood will share considerable insight into how to develop a strategy that meets the provider where they are with the data they need.
"As we continue to squeeze our health care dollars, trying to do more with less, the next great opportunity is the enhancement, streamlining, and integration of the entire system through investments in information technology," says Dr. Masood. "Internet Technology will help us share important patient information with the healthcare team, reduce medical errors to improve patient safety, and enhance the patient experience," he states.
In addition to having strong communication with providers, it is also necessary to maximize their daily productivity in order to be the most effective in their organization. Dr. Jay Wallin at Mount Carmel Health System will discuss his experience with the MEDSEEK Provider Portal in Internal Medicine and how, since the implementation of the portal, he has gained significant efficiency in his day. With the ability provided by the portal to have real-time access to the data that he needs to treat his patients in the hospital or using remote access, Dr. Wallin has more time to spend with the patient, and ultimately be more effective as a provider.
"Before MEDSEEK I had to log-in to seven different systems that were difficult to navigate just to view a portion of patient information. With MEDSEEK, I log in once and can see all patient information by hospital and covering group from anywhere. It's like a virtual round," Dr. Wallin claims.

In addition to participating in the Webinar discussion, attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of "Using Clinical Portals to Bridge Information Silos," a white paper written by Dan Bravard, RN MBA, an eHealth Specialist in MEDSEEK's Consulting Services division.
