Breakout Session Tracks

Improving Quality and Value Through Health Information Technology

Attendees will learn about the many different applications of Great Lakes Health Connect solutions and services. Current participants and GLHC representatives will share best practices, creative and innovative uses of technology, and will describe how health information technology is helping their organizations improve quality and the value of healthcare.

Social Determinants of Health Interventions and health information technology

Taking care of individuals extends beyond the walls of hospitals and clinics. The organizations and initiatives that reach deep into our communities can also realize the benefits of health information technology. Learn the best practices of implementing health information technology solutions outside of the “typical” care setting.

Integration of health information technology, creating sustainable workflow

Considering the workflow of health providers and staff is critical when implementing a health information technology solution. These presentations will educate attendees about how to evaluate and improve workflow, implement changes, and use health information technology creatively.
