HIMSS10 Physicians' IT Symposium

HIMSS = Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society

The HIMSS10 Physicians' IT Symposium is coming up quickly! The theme is "What it Means to Be a Meaningful User." The Physicians' IT Symposium will be a full day meeting on February 28, 2010. Here's what you can expect to cover that day:

A message from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT regarding:
• ARRA Funding
• Quality
• Safety
• Meaningful Use
Real-world discussion focusing on meaningful use adoption
Issues surrounding malpractice liability in the use of EHRs, PHRs and HIEs
Tough questions you need to ask your IT vendor

The HIMSS10 conference will start March 1 and run through the 4th in Atlanta, Georgia. If you're seriously considering a career in health IT, then you should attend HIMSS (you can receive CME credit while you're there) to learn, network, and explore career opportunities in the health IT industry.
