Healthcare Fest 2015: Oregon’s Best Resource for Healthcare Tips, Trends & More
According to Forbes, Healthcare Tech was the industry to watch in 2014, and it’s only getting better in 2015. With the introduction of the HITECH Act in 2009, there has been a massive increase in the adoption of electronic health records (EHR) to make the patient record-keeping process easier by providing a more accurate, comprehensive, and efficient system.
This specialized software allows doctors to enter information electronically through a desktop, laptop, or an electronic clipboard in order to access a patient’s complete history immediately. By 2013, about two-thirds of all medical practices had an EHR or similar medical registry (Forbes).
Between HIPAA, HITECH, MARS-E, CMS, and many more, maintaining compliance with regulatory standards has become quite a feat in the healthcare industry as well; it seems like everyday there is a new one added the list.
With so many new advances in technology and changes to compliance standards, it is hard to keep up, especially when time allotted for education and research is diminishing. This is why CORE Business Services and Southern Oregon Credit Service have teamed up to host Healthcare Fest 2015.
This event was put together to not only bring together professionals within the healthcare industry for a networking session, but more importantly to provide a learning environment full of highly educational presentations to help your organization tackle this ever-changing industry.
There are four speakers for this event:
Dr. Divya Sharma, MD, MS, Medical Director at the Central Oregon IPA, will be presenting Staying Independent in an Era that Encourages Consolidation.
Deanna Liadler, Senior Assistant Attorney General with the Oregon Department of Justice, will be presenting HIPAA: What You Need to Know to Protect Your Patients and Your Practice.
Bill Gallagher, founder of TeamWorks, will be presenting Placing the Right Personality in the Right Position on the Team.
Wendy Fox, VP of Marketing at Green House Data, will be presenting Secrets to Growing Your Practice Using Social Media and Your Website.
Healthcare Fest 2015 will be taking place on May 14th at the Rogue Valley Country Club in Medford Oregon from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM Pacific Time. Breakfast, snacks, and lunch will be served throughout the event, along with time to visit the Sponsor Pavilion where all of the events sponsors can be found.
