ACU 2013 Conference

ACU invites interested presenters to submit abstracts for workshops and posters for its first conference on Health IT for the Underserved to be held on March 7-8 at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie, NYPresentations are sought on the use of health IT to improve patient care and outcomes, including:  health technology tools, workforce training, patient engagement, team-based technology, patient-centered medical homes (PCMH) and meaningful use (MU), mobile technology, telehealth, and programs for special populations, such as migrant, homeless, or those living in public housing.

The deadline for abstract submissions has passed.

Save the Date! Health information technology in its many forms has the power to vastly improve health outcomes for the underserved, but many health care organizations are in the earliest stages of adopting these technologies. At this conference, you will hear from national health IT leaders about harnessing the potential of health IT for  the underserved.

The conference will be co-chaired by Katherine Brieger, Executive Director of the Hudson River HealthCare Planetree Institute, Virna Little, Sr. Vice President for Psychosocial Service and Community Affairs at the Institute for Family Health, and Earle Rugg, co-founder of Rural Health IT Corporation.
