About the Training

Technology is on the forefront of innovation.  When you think about the technical changes even in the last 10-15 years – Twitter, Facebook, smartphones, automotive GPS, Fitbits – it becomes hard to imagine where the future will take us in healthcare over the next few decades.  Technology and practice redesign can mitigate labor-intensive workflows leading to provider burnout.  Adele Allison, industry expert and futurist, will explore practice redesign through healthcare technologies including integration and use of medical scribing.  Roopak Manchanda, CEO of BlueNovo and CIO of the California Primary Care Association, will also be on hand to discuss the strategies, approaches, and services BlueNovo provides to prepare health centers to get to the next level of technology utilization while, at the same time, optimizing the utilization of their EHRs.  Designed to stimulate the imagination and drive strong data capture for financial earnings, technology and medical scribes are a growing solution to the developing problem of clinical streamlining and data integrity.
