In the weeks since the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT released its roadmap for the creation of a health IT safety center -- recently redubbed the "Collaboratory" to better articulate the center's vision -- the response has been largely positive, in principle. But some industry stakeholders question its ultimate operating potential and efficacy given that the Collaboratory's funding has not been assured.
This webinar provides an overview of the central components of a plan to develop a national Collaboratory focused on improving the safety and safe use of health IT. In the first presentation, Andy Gettinger, MD, will discuss the Collaboratory’s role in furthering HHS work in health IT safety, while Doug Johnston will review the process for convening a task force of health IT safety stakeholders to develop the Collaboratory Roadmap.
The Usability People would welcome the opportunity to work with you on improving the Usability of Healthcare IT.
