Connecting California to Improve Patient Care in 2010
A Health Information Exchange Conference

Funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), passed in February 2009, are now helping build agile electronic health data exchange services in California and across the nation. Connecting California to Improve Patient Care is a one day conference in Santa Rosa. Our speakers are regional and national subject matter experts. They will discuss best practices in health information policy, clinical technology planning and health data business operations. As with past Redwood MedNet conferences, the presentations will cover the theory and practice of effective technology deployments in Northern California. The conference specifically addresses the current status of ARRA investments in health IT, and features exhibits from leading health technology vendors offering solutions to improve patient care delivery in hospital, clinic and physician office settings.
