TiE Oregon/OHSU: Opportunities for Entrepreneurs in Health IT
OHSU - BICC (Biomedical Information Communications Center) theatre

Health Information Technology Gets $19 Billion Boost, Comparative Effectiveness Research Gets $1 Billion

The new economic stimulus bill is an example of the priority and urgency the new Congress and Obama Administration gives to reforming the health care system. As part of the stimulus package, signed into law by President Obama, $19 billion is now dedicated to transforming the patient record to an electronic format and adopting standards, to be developed by Jan 1, 2010.

Practitioners will receive incentives to use

Heath Information Technology (HIT) standards that must be developed by Jan. 1, 2010.
Physicians and other practitioners will be eligible for up to $64,000 in incentive payments over several years for the meaningful use of an electronic medical record for patients. By 2015 all physicians will be required to use electronic records in their practice. Hospitals will also be eligible for $1-9 million in incentives for meaningful EHR adoption. This stimulus package is expected to create new opportunities for entrepreneurs to provide technology and services to healthcare practitioners and organizations. It will also focus on developing the health IT workforce that institutions like OHSU are already doing, creating new career opportunities in this area.

TIE Oregon has partnered with OHSU and lined up a great panel of healthcare industry professionals and entrepreneurs who have pioneered the development and use of Electronic Health Records, who will provide insights into this industry and how entrepreneurs can capitalize on this opportunity.

If you are looking to get into this field this is your opportunity to network and learn!

FutureTalk with Bill Hersh + Happy Half-Hour
New Relic

Big Data in Healthcare and Biomedicine:

Opportunities and Challenges

› Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

Medicine is one of the last areas to fully embrace information technology. However, recent investments have led to widespread use of electronic health records while advances in gene sequencing and other biotechnologies have now led medicine to be awash in data. While this data provides new opportunities for better understanding of health and disease, there are also many challenges to its effective use. In this talk, Dr. Hersh will describe the potential for Big Data in Healthcare and Biomedicine but also discuss the myriad of challenges for its effective use.

William Hersh, MD, FACMI, FACP is Professor and Chair of the Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology in the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon. Dr. Hersh is a leader and innovator in biomedical informatics both in education and research.

Love Letters to Net Neutral Municipal Broadband
Portland City Hall

Roses are red, violets are blue, we need net neutrality and public ownership too! Hope you like typewriters, this month's event will feature a lot of them.

Comcast and other large internet service providers have successfully lobbied to repeal net neutrality, sell information about what you do online, and prevent localities from properly regulating them. Municipal broadband is the last line of defense against internet service provider abuses which threaten freedom of information, digital equality, and democracy itself.

Municipal broadband is something many cities such as Tacoma, WA and Sandy, OR already have. In Portland we have been planning to build a municipal broadband network decades, now that our internet freedoms are under attack, it’s an idea whose time has come.

2:00 pm: Event starts 2:15 pm: Speakers 2:50 pm: Letter typing 3:20 pm: The big secret is revealed! ✨
