Implementation of Health Homes : HIT Adoption Training Webinars

To enhance the Health Information Technology component of the Health Home program, which will serve as a priority care coordination model for Medicaid in NY State, the NYS Department of Health, Office of Health Information Technology Transformation (OHITT), in collaboration with the two Regional Extension Centers in New York, have put together a series of webinars based on their experience in bringing priority primary care providers to Meaningful Use.

The webinars will focus on tools and workflows for adoption of electronic health records (EHRs). Because of the similarity in adoption and support services needed for Health Homes, this series of webinars will provide assistance to Health Homes and their partners to enhance the implementation of EHRs within the Health Home Network.

The webinars schedule is as follows:

  • EHR 101
  • Wednesday, June 6, 2012
  • 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
