I’ve started talking with some people about putting together an EMR conference. The main focus of the conference would be practical knowledge and skills to be able to understand the EMR stimulus and to deal with the EMR selection and implementation process. Here’s a short list of the types of sessions I’m considering:
-EMR Selection – Getting Buy-In
-EMR Selection – Vendors
-EMR Contracts
-EMR Implementation
-IT Support Panel
-EMR Reporting/Customization/Interfaces
-Open Source/Free EMR
-ARRA/HITECH Incentives
-EMR Interoperability

Looks like it’s likely going to happen in the Baltimore area. I’m really interested to find out if there would be interest in this type of conference. Here’s a poll to help me gauge interest:

Also, I’d love to hear feedback on the above list of sessions. Is there something missing or something you wish you could hear?
