He will be followed by Dawn Bonder, who will give an overview of HIT efforts at the state level. Finally, Abby Sears will describe the efforts of her organization, OCHIN, to bring EHRs to safety net clinics as well their leadership on the proposal Oregon HIT Regional Extension Center.

    TiE Oregon - HealtCare IT - Patient Health Records

    Even though the field of healthcare has made great technological strides in the past few decades the typical patient record still looks like the patient record of 50 years ago. As part of the Obama administrations effort to modernize this field of healthcare several incentives are being offered to improve this field of healthcare.

    Patient Healthcare Records – what does it involve?

    PHR involves putting patients in control of their health information, store it in a central location, and make it easy to share and update. As simple as it may sound, the task is complicated because not only do these records need to serve the patients they also need to serve doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, insurers, pharmacists, hospitals, clinics and government regulators.

    Join us on Sept 17th for a discussion of this important field of healthcare and the entrepreneurial opportunities.

    Panelists include:

    • Grad Conn , Senior Director Microsoft HealthVault, Microsoft   
    • Phil Marshall, VP of Product Strategy, WebMD 
    • Will McKinney, Vice President, Consumer Directed Health Systems Regence, Regence 

    Panel will be moderated by Malcolm Costello, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Relations, Kryptiq

    TiE Oregon/OHSU: Opportunities for Entrepreneurs in Health IT

    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!
