The schedule is shaping up to be an amazing program. Antoine Agassi is our Keynote Speaker. He is the Chair of the E-Health Advisory Board for the Governor of Tennessee. He will be speaking about the Electronic Health Record, how it will soon be affecting your careers, and the challenges AND opportunities on the horizon for Health Documentation Specialists (Medical Transcriptionists) with this new technology. We also have Bryon Pickard, MBA, RHIA, the President of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) who will be speaking about Health Information Management and the trends and concepts that make this sector move. Also, we have the Executive Director from Care Spark (RHIO), Liesa Jenkins. Liesa is leading the charge towards developing a technical infrastructure for health information exchange amongst healthcare providers in the Tennessee area, and can speak first hand about the EHR and how important it will be in the years to come. Along with these individuals, we are currently solidifying more physicians to speak in the Clinical Medicine/EHR track providing us with the MD’s side of the story when it comes to the EHR and the future of healthcare.
Not to mention the countless opportunities for networking with fellow HIM professionals and documentation specialists in the region during our Welcome Reception on Friday night and throughout our Vendor area where we’ll be serving a Continental Breakfast and Lunch on Saturday. It isn’t often that we are able to offer an event of this caliber on a regional level. This is an opportunity that doesn’t come that often, so take advantage of this special event’s accessibility and register today.
