Session Description
Participants will learn how IT has evolved over the years and why what was good IT 20 Years ago is absolutely unacceptable today.

Learning Objectives
  1. To understand the way in which healthcare IT service has adapted to computers, the internet, and mobile devices over the last 20 years.
  2. To gain greater insight into how IT services must align themselves to regulatory compliance in healthcare settings so as to not breach HIPAA best practices.
  3. A simple grading system will be taught to participants, with the aid of a physical scorecard, that they can use to grade their own IT team and gain a better understanding of where their practice is in the evolution of IT service needs.

Interconnected technology is the reality of every medical practice, and the difference between a constant nuisance or an accelerator of efficiency comes down to the team delivering your service—find out where you fall on the IT evolution track.
