Gena Cook to speak at ACCC meeting

Navigating Cancer’s CEO, Gena Cook, will be speaking at the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) 37th annual meeting in Washington D.C. March 24-26, 2011. Gena will be speaking on Saturday the 26th about the HITECH Act and Meaningful Use and what impact it will have for patients and their families. Below is an overview from the agenda.

With meaningful use objectives, physicians will be required to give patients electronic access to their health information and provide information and tools to help engage patients and their families in their care. How do meaningful use criteria relate to the goal of engaging patients and their families to improve care coordination? Which HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) tools work best? What do patients want from their providers?

If you aren’t able to attend this year’s meeting in person, you can register as a virtual attendee and watch archived videos of all the presentations. More info here.
