AHDI-West Hosting Technology Webinars to Support Power of 10 Campaign

We’re ready! Are you?

“Power of 10” Technology Webinars

As most of you know, AHDI has launched a year-long campaign to raise a minimum of $100,000 ($10 from 10,000 MTs) by the end of 2010. This is an effort to support our association’s advocacy efforts in Washington, DC. AHDI has hired a lobbying firm, who is working to ensure our sector is well represented in the healthcare reform criteria, standards for EHR systems, and workforce development in allied health. There is definitely power in numbers.

On behalf of ALL AHDI components, AHDI-West will host a technology webinar once a month, beginning in September 2009 and extending through December 2010 (total of 16 sessions). Each webinar will be focused on various aspects of technology in our industry, featuring a variety of vendors who will provide an education overview. The webinars will be 1.5 hours in length, including 60 minutes of education/instruction and 30 minutes of Q&A, qualify for AHDI-approved CEC opportunities for registrants (either MT Tools or Technology & Workplace). The fee for each of the 16 webinars will be $10 (for all registrants). All sessions will be recorded (with the permission of the presenters) and available for download if members are not able to attend the live presentation. Each download will also cost $10 for All proceeds will be sent to AHDI earmarked for the AHDI Power of 10 campaign.

The first Power of 10 Technology webinar will be Wednesday, September 23, 2009, 2:00-3:30 PM PST.
