List of Webinars on Meaningful Use

Today, I thought it would be interesting to list the meaningful use webinars that I know of and to invite my readers to tell me about other meaningful use webinars that they know about. Just reply in the comments of this post or on the EMR and HIPAA contact us page and I’ll update this post with all the webinars we can find.

Note to Readers: Just be aware that most of the EMR vendor presentations on meaningful use are also a “sales presentation” for that EHR software. Just be prepared to be sold if you attend the EHR company webinars. However, in many cases they can also be great sources of information, because they’ve spent a lot of time in Washington watching the meaningful use process. So, you have to take the good with the bad.

I’ve taken a few minutes to list the ones I knew about and could find quickly. I’ll add more as I hear about them:
Pulse EHR Meaningful Use Webinars – 45-minute webinar summarizing the recently released Meaningful Use requirements from EHR company: Pulse EHR
NextGen EHR Meaningful Use Final Rule Webinar – 60 minute webinar with Charlie Jarvis by EHR company: NextGen
Allscripts EHR Meaningful Use In-Depth Webcasts – Webcast by EHR Company: Allscripts. Also will send you a recorded version if you don’t want to attend live.
Greenway EHR Meaningful Use Web Events 60 minute webinars from Primesuite EHR Vendor: Greenway
HIMSS Meaningful Use Webinar Series – Free for HIMSS members. $79 for non-members.
HealthData Management Final MU Rule Webinar – Panel of Meaningful Use experts
GE Healthcare – Overview of final meaningful use regulations.
Athena Health EHR Webinars – A number of meaningful use webinars and other EHR related webinars.
Official ONC and CMS Conference Call – Covering the various EHR Stimulus programs
Rosemarie Nelson from MGMA on Meaningful Use Final Rule

Please let me know of any other ones that you know about. Thanks!

  • Here is a link to another Webinar on Meaningful Use – http://www.healthdatamanagement.com/news/meaningful-use-final-rule-web-seminar-40637-1.html

    And here is the description:
    Health Data Management’s editorial staff has assembled a group of experts who will provide insight on the key differences between the proposed and final MU criteria, the implications of the changes, and how that might affect your ongoing I.T. projects. This complimentary, web seminar will be tightly focused on giving you practical information that will help you achieve meaningful EHR use. Panelists also will delve into the accompanying data standards, implementation specifications and certification criteria rule.

  • GE Healthcare, Tuesday, July 27, 2010 at 3PM ET

    “Now that the final regulations have been published,
    are you ready to take advantage of the government incentives for EMR adoption and meaningful use? If not, join us to learn how GE Healthcare can help. This complimentary webinar will provide a brief overview of the final regulations followed by some practical and actionable information on how to get started, for success now and in the future.”

    Email emr@ge.com with any questions about this webinar.”

  • Thanks Eunice. I’d add them to the list, but I can’t find a website for them. I guess I could just link to your comment. I guess GE is so big they can’t convince their web designer to post the webinar. Or their website is so big and complex that I just can’t find it.

  • Our comments crossed in cyberspace. They sent me an email since I attended one of their seminars before. I couldn’t find it mentioned on the website either!! Geez…

  • If they can’t get a link up on their website about an important webinar, I wonder how they’ll respond to a feature request you have. Don’t mind me. Just thinking out loud here.
