Health Information Technology:
Patient Safety Issues & Cybersecurity
  

Session Overview

Patient Safety issues related to Health Information Technology (H.I.T.) and the impact of cybersecurity adverse events are directly in the wheel house of quality and patient safety leaders.  Through multiple recent research surveys, we have found our audience needs help at the frontline.

Ross Koppel, PhD, Adjunct Professor of Sociology, University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, has provided tremendous insight to our TMIT audience in the area of E.H.R. patient safety in multiple webinars. He is a leading scholar of healthcare IT, and of the interactions of people, computers, and workplaces. His articles in JAMA, JAMIA, Annals of Internal Medicine, NEJM, Health Affairs, Journal of Patient Safety, the Journal of Clinical Care, Journal of Managed Care, Chest, and AHRQ-M&Ms, et cetera, are considered seminal works.

A reactor panel of patient advocates and experts will react to the presentation.

We offer these online webinars at no cost to our participants.
