MEDITECH is proud to present our upcoming Clinical Informatics Symposium, a dynamic opportunity for attendees to learn innovative strategies for improving processes, quality, and patient outcomes. The symposium is designed to guide clinicians and IT professionals through the complexities of today’s care challenges, with tangible tools to help them thrive. Taking place May 23rd - 24th, this two-day virtual event is designed for clinicians, application analysts, end users, and IT staff. The topics will focus on EHR education, optimization, and enhancements.
To tailor your experience, the event will be organized into three different tracks; Canadian, Optimization, and Education. Day One will include an Enhancement track as well.
Highlights of day one include a single session on the clinician's perspective of Expanse 2.2 for the Canadian track, allowing time to attend the other sessions in Optimization, Education, and Enhancement. The clinician’s perspective will be offered by Derek Garniss, MD, CCFP(EM), CPHIMS, CMIO, Medical Director, Emergency Medicine, Sault Area Hospital, and Julie McEachern, RN.
Features and Functions to Optimize the Physician Workflow with separate Ambulatory and Acute sessions will be featured during both day's optimization tracks. Other sessions on day one will focus on Excellence in Maternal Care, Integrating Oncology, and Acute Rehabilitation.

Amberwell Health has also utilized MEDITECH Registries to track compliance for their Medicare patient population for recommended preventative care and testing.
The optimization track will allow the opportunity to attend the session held the previous day on the Features and Functions to Optimize the Physician Workflow with separate Ambulatory and Acute sessions.
