Informatics Experts Discuss HIT Incentive Programs

Radiologists hoping to take advantage of federal health information technology (HIT) incentive programs must first understand how the programs work and how they can affect their practice revenue and operations.

A panel of experts will offer insight into recent and upcoming regulatory changes to programs during the Wednesday session, "The Future of Federal Health Information Technology Incentive Programs and Policies: Expert Panel."

Moderated by Curtis P Langlotz M.D., Ph.D., advisor to the RSNA Informatics Committee, the course will cover programs including Meaningful Use, which pays an incentive for "meaningful use" of an electronic health records, and the Physician Quality Reporting System, which offers financial incentives to physicians who report data on quality measures related to covered services.

Attendees will hear the views of experts involved in the regulatory process to understand intent and context, gain insight into recent and upcoming changes, and decide how their practice should respond to these programs.

Refresher Course 554 * Wednesday, Dec. 2, 8:30-10:00 a.m. * Room S104A.
