Event Details

  • Date: January 25, 2012
  • Time: 1:00pm to 2:30pm


  • Presenters: Peggy Wagner, Ph.D., Carl Stepnowsky, Ph.D., Lygeia Ricciardi

Overall Purpose:

Through continuing review of new developments and new research in public health and health care, previous continuing education (CE) activity evaluation, and the judgment of the CE planning group, we identified a gap between health care and public health practitioners' competencies in maintaining privacy and security in the health information technology (health IT)/health information exchange environment. This series of Webinars is designed to increase practitioners' competencies to improve health care decision-making; support patient-centered care, and improve the quality and safety of medication management. The purpose of this specific Webinar is to illustrate how health IT can impact chronic disease care.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the learning process involved in implementing a Personal Health Record (PHR) system for chronic disease care.
  2. Identify health IT strategies that impact disease outcomes through collaborative management.
  3. Describe how the Office of the National Coordinator's (ONC's) consumer e-health strategy for creating opportunities for improved patient engagement is supported by AHRQ's work.
