Continuing Physician Professional Development
Assess, redesign your workflow for today's (and tomorrow's) technology
Many physicians are working furiously to keep up with the demands of implementing and upgrading technology within their practices.
A new CME activity explores the value of workflow assessment and redesign to help doctors effectively use health information technology. Topics include:
- Electronic prescribing
- Pre-visit planning
- Point-of-care documentation
The AMA's Health IT Adoption Modules CME series is a good starting point (or refresher) of the processes involved in implementing technology. The series includes checklists, templates and information about the incentives for effective health IT use.
Also, learn more about health IT, including information on health IT basics, implementing health IT, archived webinars and more.
