A National Web Conference on Using Health IT To Improve Outcomes in Vulnerable and Disadvantaged Populations

Date: June 3, 2013

Time: 1:30-3:00 p.m., EDT

Overall Purpose:

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has identified a gap in health care and public health practitioners’ knowledge of health IT using multiple mechanisms, including the findings of the continuing education (CE) planning group. This series of Webinars is designed to increase practitioners’ ability to improve health care decisionmaking, support patient-centered care, and improve the quality and safety of care through the use of health IT. Health IT can enhance self-management and quality of life for patients within traditionally vulnerable or disadvantaged populations. This session will review the methodology and implementation of interventions that improve the health and well-being of three groups: diabetes patients of a publicly funded clinic, minority low-income pediatric patients, and people with intellectual disability (ID).
