Zynx Health CEO and Ascension Health VP of Clinical Excellence, Informatics to Speak About Evidence-Based Clinical Decisio

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Zynx Health, the market leader in providing evidence-based and experience-based clinical decision support solutions, today announced that it will partner with Ascension Health to present a session at Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference and Exhibition 2011.

WHO: Scott Weingarten, MD, MPH, president and CEO of Zynx Health and Jeff Rose, MD, vice president of clinical excellence, informatics at Ascension Health

WHAT: Dr. Weingarten and Dr. Rose will lead a HIMSS session entitled Implications of Healthcare Reform for Clinical Decision Support

WHEN: Wednesday, February 23, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ET

WHERE: Orlando County Convention Center, Room 304 E, Orlando, Florida

WHY: Clinical decision support integrated into healthcare information technology systems holds great promise for improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of care. Reimbursement for hospitals and physicians under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) is contingent upon demonstrating meaningful use of technology, which requires the use of clinical decision support. In addition, under the 2010 healthcare reform law, evidence-based healthcare is considered to be an important strategy for developing accountable care organizations (ACOs) and medical homes.

Dr. Weingarten and Dr. Rose will review the importance of clinical decision support, the intentions behind meaningful use, tangible reasons why EHR systems alone are not enough, and how it all fits in with the development of ACOs.
