Looks like the government has chosen Google Plus as the best platform to be able to reach out and stay in touch with the larger community. I just read that Obama will be doing a Google+ hangout a few days after the State of the Union address. In similar fashion, today Doug Fridsma from ONC hosted a Google Plus Hangout discussing some of the projects that ONC is participating in. Plus, the beautiful part of a Google Hangout by ONC is that it’s automatically recorded and published to YouTube. So, if you missed the hangout, you can watch the ONC Hangout video embedded below.

Here’s who participated on the ONC Hangout:
Doug Fridsma, M.D., Ph.D. – Chief Scientist at ONC
Arien Malec – VP Strategy and Product Marketing at RelayHealth, Former Coordinator for the Direct Project
Deven McGraw – Director of the Health Privacy Project at CDT
John Moehrke – Principal Engineer: Interoperability and Security at GE
Vince Kuraitis – Principal, Better Health Technologies, LLC
Brian Ahier – Health IT Evangelist
John Travis – Senior Director and Solution Strategist, Regulatory Compliance at Cerner
Alice Leiter – Policy Counsel at Center for Democracy & Technology

Turns out that I’m actually planning my first Google+ hangout as well with some of the people from HIMSS. Watch for more details on that soon.

Ok, so this was the first video that I made in the EMR video series (see the other video I posted on EMR data sharing). So, I stumble around a little bit on the video, but I think I provide some interesting answers to the question. Although, I’ll admit that it’s a really hard question to answer.

Here’s the question I try to answer in this video:
How will Healthcare IT and EMR save on Medicare costs?
