Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) April 3, 2009
1450, the world's leading distributor of Dragon® Medical speech recognition software for the healthcare industry, announces the launch of EHRtv.com, a service which is poised to become the most comprehensive library of video information available for physicians on Electronic Health Records, Electronic Medical Records, and Personal Health Records.
"The pace of physician adoption of EHR technology has been painfully slow during the preceding decade." says Eric Fishman, MD, President and CEO of 1450. "However, with the passage of the Economic Stimulus package, offering both incentives and penalties associated with rapid and delayed adoption of health information technology, respectively, there is an urgent need for physicians to obtain information in as rapid a fashion as possible."
The creative team of EHRtv draws upon over half-a-century of medical IT and medical journalism experience to bring physicians and other healthcare facilities such as IPAs and community hospitals the most reliable information on EHRs available on the web today. "With our extensive contacts within federal health agencies and the industry itself, we go right to the source for the most up to date and accurate information concerning EHRs, EMRs and PHRs." Says EHRtv's Creative Director, Steven Goodman.
Featured videos currently on the site include: An introduction to EHRs, Vendor Selection, Analysis of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), and various demonstration videos of EHR software. Hundreds of other spots are planned, with new content being added daily. EHRtv will feature interviews of EHR company executives, politicians, physicians and CIOs. We will also discuss negotiating with EHR vendors, EHR implementation, e-Prescribing, physician workflow, interoperability, templates, hardware, networks, scanning, security, mobility, billing, practice management, and PHRs. EHRtv will be interviewing at HIMSS09 in Chicago, April 4th - April 7th, 2009.
"Videos are just the surface," says Fishman. "We know that video is a great way to engage and educate the audience. However, EHRtv is only one part of our integrated approach to HIT, which includes the print magazine EHR Scope, consulting services through EMRConsultant.com and speech recognition expertise, all of which can be accessed through our menu of services at http://www.1450.com/logomeaning.html . Take a look at our logo. You'll see that it is designed to represent the integration and interconnectivity of all aspects of healthcare information."
