Zynx Health CMO to Speak About Impact of Evidence-based Clinical Decision Support on Hospitals’ Financial Performance

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Zynx Health, the market leader in providing evidence-based and experience-based clinical decision support solutions (CDS), today announced that it will present a Lunch & Learn session at Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference and Exhibition 2012.

WHO: David Rhew, MD, senior vice president and chief medical officer of Zynx Health

WHAT: Dr. Rhew will present the HIMSS Lunch & Learn session entitled “Making the Business Case for Quality and Evidence-based Clinical Decision Support.”

WHEN: Tuesday, February 21, 2012, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM PST

WHERE: Venetian Sands Expo Center, Room 203, Las Vegas, NV

WHY: Hospitals and healthcare systems face increasing pressures to cut costs, increase reimbursement, and achieve Medicare break-even. Both the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 introduced programs that tie hospital Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reimbursements to quality performance metrics.

In his Lunch & Learn session, Dr. Rhew will address the critical role that evidence-based CDS plays in not only meeting these legislative requirements, but also in strengthening hospitals’ bottom line.
