The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) is sponsoring an Electronic Prescribing Technology Solutions Showcase on October 6-7, 2008 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel & Towers in Boston, MA, during the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) National E-Prescribing Conference.

"HIMSS Technology Solutions Showcase will feature the latest e-prescribing, electronic health record, and decision support technologies that licensed practitioners will need to meet the newly approved CMS requirements as passed by Congress," said Dave Roberts, HIMSS vice president of Government Relations. "This Solutions Showcase is another outstanding example that highlights how the private sector can respond quickly to federal policy changes by educating and informing all stakeholders on the tremendous value and opportunities provided by health information technology to transform healthcare."

The CMS E-Prescribing Conference and HIMSS Technology Solutions Showcase will focus on the new incentives payable under the Medicare program starting January 1, 2009 and other means to accelerate the adoption of e-prescribing. E-prescribing enables licensed practitioners to transmit prescriptions via the Internet, instead of writing them on paper. Beginning in 2009 and until 2013, Medicare will provide incentive payments to eligible providers who e-prescribe.

Find out how to earn incentives from Medicare, learn how e-prescribing can work for your practice, and get answers to your questions from experts about privacy, security, and risk management.
