An honest look at one hospital's realization that it will not meet the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s (ARRA) Meaningful Use criteria, and what it's doing to plan for noncompliance.
Clarence M. Sevillian, III, president and CEO, Doctor's Hospital of Michigan, Pontiac, Mich.
- Identify the realities facing many hospitals who cannot afford the investments required to achieve Meaningful Use including what one hospital is doing to address the issue.
- Outline the process the hospital followed to map its current IT situation against the Meaningful Use criteria and their own financial situation, and the decisions made in the contingency plan to narrow the gaps.
- Apply a two-way conversation with attendees designed to share mutual "gap" experiences with an emphasis on creative IT solutions that still deliver on the goal of improved patient care.
