EHR Summit

November 17th, 2010


Dates:  November 17 - 19, 2010

Location:  Scottsdale, Arizona

Venue:  The Phoenician

This is a complex program, offering 3 general sessions and 10 concurrent sessions. The concurrent sessions are specifically designed to provide education for two distinct groups: billing companies that are still looking for the appropriate EHR partner (Track A) and those who have already selected an EHR vendor (Track B).  Please note, while you will need to decide on one session for each concurrent session when you register, you are not 'locked in' to one track or the other.  Your selection of events will better allow us to plan this summit.

If you attend all of the sessions allowed, you can earn up to 20.25 CEU's toward the CHBME designation.

Topics to be covered include:
- Legal Contracting with Vendors and/or clients
- Conducting a Vendor Demo
- Evaluating a Vendor
- Interface vs. Integrate
- Business Model Development & Project Management
- E-Discovery Issues
- Marketing & Selling an EHR System
- Data Conversion... and more


We are inviting at least 10 EHR vendors to participate which will allow all attendees to view vendor demonstrations on-site. Our goal is to assist you in every way possible in making your selection of the appropriate EHR partner for your group, or, if you have already selected your EHR vendor, how to maximize the relationship.  Also included in this summit will be round-table discussions as well as Q&A sessions with the experts on EHR. We have also included time for networking with the speakers, vendors and other participants. Mark Anderson, FHIMISS, CPHIMS from the AC Group will offer the keynote address and will be on-hand for all 3 days to lead discussions as well as answer your questions.
