HITSP and Meaningful Use

This seems to be a week for announcements. In two weeks HITSP will be holding its second town hall meeting. This one will be worth listening in on, as they will be discussing some of the HITSP work products that impact meaningful use. I would be on this call, but unfortunately, I'll actually be in HITSP meetings all week long ;-)>


HITSP Free Webinar Series The Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP) is identifying the standards that will support the exchange of healthcare information across the United States.
