Dr. Farzad Mostashari

Dr. Farzad Mostashari, CEO of Aledade.

The US has an aggressive approach to ‘meaningful use’ of electronic medical record (EMR) technology to deliver better patient outcomes. Should Canada follow suit? Join Dr. Farzad Mostashari, President Obama’s former National Coordinator for Health Information Technology to hear about real world examples and an insightful analysis of incentivising vs subsidising EMRs.

Dr. Mostashari will speak to:

  2. The benefits for chronic disease management and clinical outcomes
  3. How to avoid funding failed projects navigating complex government procurement
  4. The relationship between EMR technology adoption and clinical practice models
  5. Models for advancing ePrescribing in a private sector context
