MLA's Educational Webinar
Addressing Hospital Needs and Goals in the Era of the Affordable Care Act
and Meaningful Use: What Librarians Need to Know (On-demand Recording)
Originally held Wednesday, November 20, 2013
The Affordable Care Act, meaningful use, and greater scrutiny of not-for-profit
status have brought on some significant changes in the way hospitals provide
health care. Hospitals must meet specific goals to avoid penalties and receive
maximum reimbursement for care. They are repositioning staff and budgets to
deal with these changes to improve patient care, increase patient satisfaction,
and meet meaningful use of the electronic health record (her) system. Libraries
are departments within the hospital, and like all other departments, they must
illustrate clearly to administration specifically how they help their hospital
achieve these goals. This webinar will look at these changes and how they affect
our institutions and how librarians can meet them head on.
