Join the first Webinar from the New Jersey Health IT Coordinator’s Office on February 15th at Noon EST!

You are invited to join the first webinar from the New Jersey Health IT Coordinator’s Office which is part of the 2012 monthly webinar series. Colleen Woods, New Jersey Health IT Coordinator, who is part of the Governor’s Office, will host this first webinar on “Introduction to Electronic Health Records and Health IT: What it Means to Healthcare Providers and Patients.” 

New Jersey hospitals, physicians, and healthcare professionals are rolling out EHRs and Health IT as part of a nationwide movement to improve healthcare with the use of computers and health information technology. The goal is to have a real-time patient record, called an Electronic Health Record (EHR), for every person in New Jersey by 2014. The Webinar will feature the first national physician leader of the current Health IT initiative who will be joined by New Jersey physician leaders in describing what EHRs and Health IT are, the value to both physicians and patients, and what patients and physicians can anticipate.
