Putting Patients First: Using Health Information Technology to Support Patient-Centered Care

Wednesday, April 30, 2008
7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

The cost for this program is $10.

Friends of the Institute attend at no cost.

IBM, a strong supporter of efforts to implement the medical home, has adopted a Patient-Centric Healthcare Model to drive value for their employees, resulting in healthier employees and lower health expenses for the organization. Within the model, information technology supports care that evolves around the patient.  In 2007, NYS committed to invest $106 million in the health care system in the state to support implementation of health information technology tools to advance patient-centered care.  Join us for discussion of Putting Patients First, continuing the discussion from our November 2007 primer on the medical home and shifting payment methodologies to talk about the role of information technology in supporting patient-centered care and the drivers pushing the use of information technology for this purpose, and experiences within our region.
