Digital Healthcare Conference 2004

UW Health and the Wisconsin Technology Network are bringing together leaders in the fields of healthcare delivery, information technology, telecommunications, and law to stimulate discussions on how information technology can be better leveraged to improve quality, patient safety and reduce costs.

Even though the technology exists, organizations struggle transitioning their error prone paper-based systems to safer and more efficient digital ones. When information technology is properly deployed following intelligent, clinically relevant workflow, medical errors are reduced and patient safety increases. This also creates a better and more rewarding working environment for the clinical staff.

During this conference attendees will explore the interface between end users and technology, and how to get the most from the many unique information technology tools now available.

This full day symposium will explore:

  • Standards and protocols necessary to make the exchange of clinical information seamless
  • Efforts necessary to build effective healthcare IT networks at the local, state and national level
  • Methods to digitally share healthcare information in private and secure networks
  • Impact of information technology on patient safety
  • Legal obstacles to information access
