Harnessing the Power of Your EHR for Quality Improvement: Successful Strategies from Primary Care Colleagues – Webinar
Register now for a free webinar, where representatives from primary care will relate their success stories with using health IT to support quality improvement (QI). The webinar, hosted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, is slated for Thursday, April 30, 3 p.m. – 4 p.m. ET.
Health information technology (health IT) can be an important and effective tool for primary care practices to use in their ongoing QI efforts. However, significant barriers have limited these efforts.. Despite these barriers, exemplary primary care practices and organizations have found ways to effectively use health IT to support QI efforts. Drawing on findings from a recently-published AHRQ white paper, this webinar highlights lessons learned by exemplary practices and is designed for primary care practices interested in improving care delivery and those who support them in making changes.
Panelists represent a small independent primary care practice; a large academic primary care practice; and a health information network that supports primary care practices, particularly federally qualified health centers and other safety net clinics.
