AMA and MAG to host EHR Town Hall on July 20 - firstname.lastname@example.org - Gmail
On July 20 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (EDT), the AMA and the Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) will be hosting a town hall meeting in Atlanta to discuss electronic health records (EHR), featuring Rep. Tom Price, MD (GA-6), and AMA President Steven J. Stack, MD. This event is being held for physicians who have concerns about EHRs with Stage 3 Meaningful Use regulations potentially looming just around the corner. Physicians across the country will be able to watch live online and join the conversation on Twitter. Meaningful Use is not working, but bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., still want to move forward with Stage 3 implementation. That could mean less time with patients, less practice innovation and costly penalties if physicians do not comply. Currently, physician participation in Meaningful Use Stage 2 sits at less than 10 percent, compared to 80 percent adoption of EHRs. Please join the AMA and MAG for a conversation with Rep. Price as well as national and local physician leaders about EHRs, the potential consequences of Meaningful Use Stage 3 and what you can do to stop it. This event will be streamed live online – please register today!
