I will be doing a workshop on ‘Electronic Medical Records’ covering key benefits, challenges and opportunities attached to EMR.
This workshop is a pre-symposium event for the 49th Symposium of Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center, Karachi, Pakistan. It is scheduled for 27 March 2012, 0900 Hrs (+5 UTC)
Participation will be via SKYPE, with a pre-recorded backup video in case the connection breaks during the event.
It’s my understanding the state of the art of medicine in Pakistan is not encumbered with the EMR/EHR problems/issues that exist in many countries so there is a potential leapfrog opportunity here in terms of adoption of user-friendly EMRs that feature decision-support and the ability to accommodate ad hoc Case interventions.
The focus of my workshop will be on increasing staff efficiency, increasing throughput, decreasing medical/admin errors, improving compliance with standards (internal and external).
I am really looking forward to this event.
