Course Description

This course is provided by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and will require a secondary login and/or registration.

This webinar focuses on using health information technology (IT) to help coordinate care among outpatient and inpatient safety net providers. Care coordination between these two provider settings is important for improving healthcare outcomes, increasing patient safety, reducing costs, and attaining patient centered care. Presenters, from both rural and urban safety net environments, will discuss how they have achieved patient care coordination and describe how they overcame barriers related to infrastructure/ health IT, governance issues, staff communication, patient engagement, and the sharing of patient data. This webinar is important for safety net providers as they implement health IT systems and prepare for changes in how they provide patient care for programs funded by the Affordable Care Act.
