Attendees Learned About EHRs through Clinical Demonstrations

Over 100 physicians and practice managers traveled across the state to attend the Colorado EHR Selection Summit last week. The Summit was hosted by CORHIO and the Colorado Regional Extension Center (CO-REC) to help physicians gain practical information about certified EHR technologies. Eleven EHR vendors demonstrated their products through various real-life clinical scenarios.

Summit attendees had positive things to say about the event. "The EHR Selection Summit was a very informative and intense process," said Julie Blue, the practice manager for Alcott Women's Center at Platte Valley. It was great to meet with CO-REC in person. They answered a lot of the questions we had, and we found out that we might even qualify for stimulus money. CO-REC has been such a valuable resource to us!"

"The EHR Selection Summit was definitely a success," said Robyn Leone, director of CO-REC. "The attendees were very engaged and participated very actively in the product demonstrations. Many of the vendors commented that it was the 'best REC event they've been to yet.'"
