Health IT seminar series available through College of Technology
The College of Technology will be a host site for a four-seminar series on Health Information Technology.
The Indiana Health Informatics Corporation (IHIC), Indiana Health Industry Forum (IHIF) and the Indiana University Research and Technology Corporation (IURTC) are presenting the series along with supporting partners BioCrossroads and Techpoint. The College of Technology and Purdue’s Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering are partnering to make the sessions available in the Lafayette-West Lafayette area.
The seminars will be available via videoconference at 11 locations across the state. Seminar dates are:
The conference series has three objectives: to provide current information on Indiana’s pursuit of stimulus funding for building health IT infrastructure, to provide information on the industry to those interested in working in the sector, and to demonstrate the broad and varied Health Information Exchange networks already in place in Indiana.
"Ideal participants would include those working in the IT sector in hospitals or physician practices, those working to develop electronic medical record (EMR) and personal health record (PHR) software or systems, and those interested in learning more about working in the sector,” says Kristin Jones, interim president, Indiana Health Industry Forum.
All seminars will run from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. (Eastern time).
The cost to attend one session is $25 or $90 to attend all four seminars and paying participants must register in advance at www.ihif.org. Purdue University faculty, staff, and students entering with valid Purdue IDs can attend free of charge.
