About this Webcast

The federal government is offering as much as $34 billion in financial assistance to healthcare providers that buy, implement and use information technology in a manner consistent with the way the government wants it to be used. The government explained what it wants in nearly 700 pages of proposed regulations issued earlier this month.

In this webcast moderated by Modern Healthcare Information Technology Reporter Joseph Conn, four healthcare IT experts will break down those regulations and help attendees:
Identify the key sections of the regulations
Understand the impact of the regulations on hospitals, health systems and physician practices
Teach providers strategies to qualify for federal funding
