Diane Yeager RN worked as a nurse in Labor & Delivery and Intensive Care for 7 years until 1992 at which point her career shifted to education. For the next 15 years, Diane worked as a Nursing Instructor in Northeast Ohio. Her results were impressive with an NCLEX pass rate for her graduating students of 97% throughout her teaching career. Her impact as a teacher was recognized when, during her fifth year of teaching, she received the Ohio Organization of Practical Nurse Educators' award for Distinguished Practical Nurse Educator of 1996.
Diane's success as an educator was due to her enthusiasm for integrating computer technology into her teaching methodology which led to the creation of FreeNurseTutor, launched in 2006. Freenursetutor.com is a unique and completely free website that lets educators and students use a collection of self-paced and learning activities with a focus on interactivity and individualized learning. FreeNurseTutor is now used as an educational supplement by healthcare instructors and students at hundreds of schools.
In 2007, Diane followed the trends in healthcare technology and transitioned to a career as an Electronic Health Records trainer. Diane has developed curriculum and instructional materials and trained healthcare personnel during large scale EHR system implementations at major hospital systems.
As an EHR trainer, and through continued contact with healthcare educators, it became clear to Diane that most career tech and nursing schools simply do not have a way to prepare their students for the new world of electronic records. She enthusiastically embraced this as a personal challenge and used her experience in education and electronic health records to create an academic EHR system: EHR Tutor. EHR Tutor is designed to immediately deliver the "missing piece" of electronic records to any school's program. More information regarding EHR Tutor can be found at ehrtutor.com.
Join us as we explore the challenges hospitals, physician practices and health systems face to realize the benefits of integrating electronic health records (EHRs) into the contact center through workflow redesign and optimization. While EHRs were suppose to reduce errors and streamline care, our observations highlight a multitude of usability and productivity issues that cause frustration for patients, caregivers and physicians alike.

It’s always interesting to weigh in on the topic of health information technology (HIT). Some seem to love it, while others avoid working with HIT (or seem to think they hate it until they realize they need them to survive). Sharon Seeder, an HIT industry leader, joins the discussion shedding light on topics ranging from electronic health records (EHRs) to Big Data.
Health care providers see the future of accountable care in their practice and efficient patient communication is going to become very important. Sam Johnson of Relatient joins us to discuss the problem they see with current messaging systems that charge per use and how they came up with a solution to help hospitals and medical practices become more efficient at communicating with patients.
Jim Tate, President of EMR Advocate and Leading Expert on the CMS EHR Incentive program will join us to talk about the CMS Meaningful Use (MU) audit and appeal process. His unique combination of skills has brought successful outcomes to hospitals at risk of having their CMS EHR incentives recouped.
He has a history of writing and presenting on the topic of Meaningful USe audits and appeals since this critical threat first emerged in 2012. He speaks to both hospital and physician groups interested in understanding the process and their ability to be prepared should an audit occur. I am looking forward to getting Jim's expert insight on this important topic. Please join us!

It's about time that the insurance companies did a number on their numbers. In the recent past a few insurance companies have dug into their decades of data and showed what dental hygienists have known for decades. Dental hygiene saves money, saves medical costs and dental hygiensts trapped under the protective patronly wing of dentistry costs billions to the health care system.
Last year The Medical Dental Integration Study was released. A study by United Health Care showed that patients' overall, total average health care costs were considerably lower for individuals with "chronic medical conditions who received periodontal treatment or cleanings within the timeframe of this study even when considering the costs of additional dental treatments. Savings for individuals receiving preventive dental care were observed across all chronic medical disease categories in this study."
I'd like to point out that these are rank n file two year degree hygiensits. They are not specially trained in any way to fit the parameters of the study. They don't have baccalaureate or masters' degrees. They are the type of hygienist you see every day.
A lot of this information could be coming from dental offices, but the lack of attention to Electronic Health Records has put this information to a dark dank corner. Why?
