I’ve been quite impressed by the  American College of Healthcare Executives interest in health information technology over the last few years and their desire to spark the imagination of healthcare leaders.

I’ve been quite impressed by the  American College of Healthcare Executives interest in health information technology over the last few years and their desire to spark the imagination of healthcare leaders.  It was especially exciting to see us evolve to talking about creating a 6-week online seminar on the subject of Health Information Technology

The best thing about this seminar on IT stuff is that the course instructor and participants are all healthcare leaders who share their varied perspectives and experiences during the weekly discussions. We explore the disruptors, strategy, risks, emerging issues and review the interconnected nature of the technologies.  The six weekly topics brokend down into:

Week 1:  Introduction, Stats, Disruptors

Week 2:  Electronic Health Records

Week 3:  Health Information Exchange

Week 4:  Telehealth, Telemedicine, Remote Monitoring, Education/Mentoring

Week 5:  Social Media and Mobile Health

Week 6:  What the Future Holds for Heatlhcare!

I’ve really enjoyed the process of pulling this course together and thinking through what participants wanted and needed to know.  We are just finishing up our trial run through the program and will start the next session on October 12.  If you think you might like to join us visit the ACHE site for registration information.
