Don’t Buy the Healthcare IT “Snake Oil”!

Presented by

Marion Jenkins, Healthcare Technology Partners

About this talk

Recently the president of the American Medical Association referred to healthcare IT as the “snake oil” of the 21st century. He referenced ineffective electronic health records, an explosion of direct-to-consumer digital health products, and apps of mixed quality. In this webinar, leading healthcare expert, Marion Jenkins, will cover the major causes of this sorry state of affairs, and discuss how healthcare technologies can actually help medical practices deliver better patient care. Major areas to be covered: 1.Who is to blame? There is plenty to go around. Physicians? Healthcare IT vendors? The government? The solution must get past blame and address solutions. 2.How can clinical users and executives “break through” the logjam of sub-optimal IT systems, poor implementation, and ineffective workflows? 3.Is it possible to utilize new technologies to improve patient care, without breaking the bank and further hurting the clinician/patient experience? 4.What are the necessary changes that enable technology to actually provide benefit in a healthcare setting?
