| September 25, 2013


The Association for Pathology Informatics (API) and Sunquest Information Systems are pleased to continue their monthly educational webinar series on pathology informatics.  Please join us for our next webinar on Thursday, September 26 at 1 PM EDT/10 AM PDT, presented by Walter H. Henricks, MD of Cleveland Clinic.

EHRs are transforming the practice of medicine and have important implications for pathologists, their laboratories, and the patients they serve.  This presentation will examine the ramifications for laboratories and pathologists of “Meaningful Use” and related federal programs.  The discussion will also touch on challenges and opportunities that laboratories and pathologists face in providing services in an environment of expanding EHR use.  Key points of this presentation include:

*        What is “Meaningful Use” and other EHR-related federal programs?

*        Recognizing the relevance of “Meaningful Use” for pathology and laboratory medicine

*        Gaining increased awareness of clinical, operational, and regulatory concerns for laboratories and pathologists with the increasing deployment of EHRs

Please register for the following webinar with a corporate email address.

A recording of the webinar will be made available on the members’ only area of the API web site 2-3 business days after the presentation.
