LeadingAge and CAST members were front-and-center in mid-June when health information technology (HIT) leaders, policy makers, technology vendors and long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) providers gathered in Baltimore, MD, for the 8th Annual LTPAC Health IT Summit. CAST led, organized and co-organized a number of conference sessions.
The 2-day Summit covered topics that are highlighted as priorities and recommendations in the 2012-2014 Roadmap for Health IT in LTPAC issued by the LTPAC HIT Collaborative.
In addition, the Summit showcased real-world implementation successes and put the spotlight on certified LTPAC electronic health records (EHRs).
An Interoperability and Innovation Showcase highlighted products demonstrating HIT interoperability for shared care, transfer of care, personal health and e-prescribing.
CAST was well represented during the Summit’s educational sessions.
