I'm very excited about the Web Wonders event beginning at 2:30 today. This program is in its third year and is free and open to any Annual Meeting attendee interested in viewing demonstrations of new technologies designed specifically to improve workflow and enhance patient care. We designed the event this year specifically to capture easy-to-implement, relatively inexpensive technologies that can make a big difference in your daily life, and attendees will be able to get a good idea of costs for different products. Among other technologies, demonstrators will explain how modules such as e-prescribing and patient portals can contribute to the "meaningful use" definition that allows physicians to earn up to $44,000 in incentive payments.
All demonstrators are physicians who are not representing specific companies...and you'll also be happy to know that we've placed the location of the event conveniently next door to the Best Care Expo, so attendees can easily visit back and forth between the two.
I hope to see you later today at Web Wonders: The Must-Have Technologies for Neurologists in 2010!
