The adoption of EMRs carries a great deal of risk that is mitigated by having knowledgeable well-trained staff and consultants involved in the project.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
The Tuesday, May 1, 2012 edition of MU Live! – an internet talk radio show hosted by meaningful use resource HITECH Answers – will feature guest speaker Wendy Whitmore, CIO of electronic medical record consulting resource EMRApproved.com. Speaking live at 2:00pm Eastern time, Whitmore will discuss hiring and training an IT staff for an EMR rollout.
Whitmore has more than 20 years experience in the healthcare and IT industries, including her current project EMRapproved.com – the leading source of free information and resources for EMR. Whitmore’s goal is to help fill the current demand in the healthcare industry for IT professionals knowledgeable about healthcare guidelines and EMR. She provides a particularly pertinent perspective on this topic as she spent significant resources training her own IT employees to learn healthcare technology and grow EMRapproved.com to what it is today. After years of working with EMR and healthcare IT consulting, Whitmore knows what it takes for a provider’s staff to successfully implement an EMR system. “As with any IT project, the adoption of EMRs carries a great deal of risk that is mitigated by having knowledgeable well-trained staff and consultants involved in the project," said Whitmore.
Her knowledge and expertise will be a welcome addition to MU Live! – the first show of its kind in the healthcare industry. The 30-minute radio talk is hosted by HITECH Answers, an independent source of research and information related to the Health Information Technology for Economy and Clinical Health Act of 2009. Part of an initiative designed to facilitate faster adoption of EMR systems by medical offices and hospitals in the United States, the HITECH Act has left many physicians confused (and many others completely in the dark) regarding laws and expectations over their adoption of EMR.
As part of their plan to help individuals working in the medical field who may be affected by the HITECH Act and Meaningful Use, MU Live! features experts and guest speakers to discuss news, developments and issues that revolve around healthcare IT. Recent guests include former healthcare organization directors, healthcare IT consultants, government Meaningful Use representatives and other EMR industry experts.
