ACU Invites you to
Health IT and the Underserved
March 7 - 8, 2013
Health information technology in its many forms has the power to vastly improve health outcomes for the underserved. But many health care organizations are still in the earliest stages of adopting these technologies. To help clinical leaders further their understanding of and adoption of health IT tools, ACU is convening its first conference on Health IT and the Underserved on March 7-8, 2013, at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie, NY.
At this conference, you will hear from national health IT leaders about harnessing the potential of health IT for the underserved. We want to Transform the Way You Think about Change!
Call for Presentations
ACU invites interested presenters to submit abstracts for workshops and posters for this conference. Presentations are sought on the use of health IT to improve patient care and outcomes, including: health technology tools, workforce training, patient engagement, team-based technology, patient-centered medical homes (PCMH) and meaningful use (MU), mobile technology, telehealth, and programs for special populations, such as migrant, homeless, or those living in public housing.
Please submit your abstract online. The deadline for abstract submissions is September 1, 2012.
