Electronic Health Records (EHR): Challenges & Opportunities

Live: Thursday, February 11, 2010 at 1:00pm ET

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, included in the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, earmarked nearly $19 billion for healthcare IT spending, specifically electronic health records (EHR).

And while many physicians have one or more EHR components in either the planning or implementLation phase, over 90 percent of all physicians in the United States still lack a complete EHR system.

Anyway you add it, this equates to enormous opportunity for healthcare organizations and subsequently for consultants. However, it is important to remember that such potential is not without its share of challenges.
