Update on CPOE, HIT, and Using Simulators – SpeakerLink® Success Stories
 Session Overview
Twelve months ago, the IOM released the report "Health IT and Patient Safety: Building Safer Systems for Better Care." Since that time, news coverage on the challenges of deploying IT systems has been extensive. HIT expert David Classen, MD, will provide an interim update and share how health information systems can be tested using simulators to identify and mitigate risk before systems are brought online, as well as post-deployment. Dr. Classen will be joined by Charles Denham, MD, a globally recognized speaker in leadership, and contributor to the study of HIT, as well as a reactor panel representing patients and caregivers to react to the presentation.
Increasingly, healthcare organizations are bringing patients, advocates, and families into quality improvement efforts, including governance retreats and best-practice development. In the second half of the webinar, nationally recognized patient advocate Trisha Torrey will share patient-engagement success stories and valuable tools, such as SpeakerLink.org, that you can use to find the right patient advocates for your organization. Beyond their powerful stories, these patient advocates can provide results-driven and practical quality improvement solutions.
