“Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.” ~ Charles Dudley Warner
There is SO much talk about Health IT and EHRs and yet, how many of us can say we’re actively involved? Attribute this to HIPAA, or politics or a silo mentality at many institutions, librarians are frequently frustrated by a perceived inability to get to the table and contribute.
This webinar features two librarians who ARE involved. Tune in to hear how one describes ways to become involved and stay in touch with EHRs and hear the experiences of another teaching EPIC’s CADENCE application to employees working at the front desk of her organization.
Guest speakers include:
- Dina McKelvy, MLS, AHIP, Library Manager for Automation and Planning at Maine Medical Center Library
- Mina Davenport, MLS,CT, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland
