Join Samuel Ross, Health Informatics Facilitator at Chicago Health IT Regional Extension Center (CHITREC), for a discussion on the optimization of health IT to meet the demands of programs such as Meaningful Use and the Quality Payment Program.  Providers and practices are increasingly working to overcome the challenges of navigating EHR functionality in a changing healthcare landscape.
