A four-hour workshop two days before the official start of HIMSS13 in New Orleans targets small physician practices and will focus on changes in the Stage 1 electronic health records meaningful program starting in 2013, as well as what is ahead in Stage 2. But Workshop A, March 2, also will delve into how staff can generate after-visit summaries for patients with little or no work by a physician.

With the workshop scheduled at 1:00 p.m. on a Saturday, Paul Kleeberg, M.D., encourages physicians to bring staff members with them, particularly from Louisiana and neighboring states. Kleeberg is CMIO at Stratis Health, the quality improvement organization for Minnesota and the regional health information technology center for Minnesota and North Dakota. The REC is federally funded under the 2009 Stimulus Law to assist physicians in adopting and optimally using EHRs.
