Lessons learned, pitfalls to avoid and successes achieved so far will all feature in this interactive, exploratory session hosted and moderated by Accenture. Learn how to set appropriate goals, achieve them and communicate the benefits to clinical staff, while ensuring patients experience the advantages along the care pathway. From tactical detail to macro benefits and strategy, come along to get a firm grasp on the most important aspects of EHRs.
