Tuesday, Oct. 26, 1-2 p.m. Eastern Time — Presented by the Care Continuum Alliance
Federally supported “Beacon Communities” are at work now defining how health information technology will support accountable, evidence-based care in communities – especially for care of chronic conditions. Backed by $235 million in federal grants, 15 communities across the country are serving as Beacon Community pilots for eventual wide-scale, performance-based use of technology to improve our health care delivery system.
The goal of the webinar is to address
- The fundamental nature and vision of the Beacon Community Program
- How the Beacon Program will influence nationwide delivery system reform and be a guide-path toward developing community infrastructures
- Other implications for the future of healthcare delivery
Why You Need to Know About Beacon Communities
Beacon Communities will:
