Minnesota e-Health Summit:


June 24-25, 2009

The purpose of the Summit is to provide participants tools and resources to guide success in implementing EHRs and HIT in the current economic climate. Examples of national and Minnesota e-health activities highlight the challenges faced and strategies used to overcome them. The Summit will advance the effort to meet the mandate to achieve interoperable EHRs by 2015 and optimize the incentives offered with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and other opportunities.

The Pre-Summit Workshop on June 24 focused on effective use of an EHR investment. Strategies for comprehensive planning, optimal utilization, and achieving maximum value were shared. Information and resources about a variety of grants, loans, incentives, and reimbursements was discussed.
