Join us on April 7, 12pm ET, for our next installment of the MedBiquitous Community Connection webinar series.
Dr. Steph Hoelscher and Dr. Dwayne Hoelscher will present on the timely topic, "Electronic Health Records: Clinical Decision Support Lessons Learned with Ebola and Zika for COVID-19."
With the current pandemic of Coronavirus, COVID-19, the global healthcare information technology community has again been challenged to provide evidence-based solutions to aid clinicians in quick, effective clinical guidance. Drs. Hoelscher and Hoelscher will discuss their original doctoral project, as well as past interprofessional collaborative efforts between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology to address prior infectious disease threats with the Ebola and Zika viruses.
Their previous work resulted in significant model development and best practices for an all-hazards approach to fully utilizing health IT resources to minimize risk to the public. The presenters will share how the historical responses to the Zika and Ebola viruses helped to map clinical workflows and rapidly deploy clinical decision support in a large integrated health system in Texas in response to COVID-19.
