Internet2 is proud to announce that the fifth annual Collaboration summer working meeting is going to take place in Calgary, Alberta, Canada from Tuesday, July 25 to Thursday, July 27. The Collaboration is working to bring about significant and positive change in Electronic Health Records (EHR) software in order to advance patient care, research, and education in the dental profession.

Toward a New Generation of Electronic Health Records (EHR) software

 

By leveraging Internet2’s NET+ process, collaborators from the Universities of Michigan, North Carolina and Pittsburgh have been engaging in a multi year-long effort, known as the Collaboration for Health IT (Collaboration).

The Collaboration is working to bring about significant and positive change in Electronic Health Records (EHR) software in order to advance patient care, research, and education in the dental profession.

Internet2 is proud to announce that the fifth annual Collaboration summer working meeting is going to take place in Calgary, Alberta, Canada from Tuesday, July 25 to Thursday, July 27.  The purpose of this three day face-to-face meeting is to bring together representatives from interested institutions to:

  1. Advance strategies for successful implementation of ICE Health Systems (ICE).
  2. Explore and expand “game changing” innovations now being developed within ICE.
  3. Review the charges, successes and plans of the current working groups.
  4. Set the priorities for the next generation of ICE, as well as any third-party integrations into ICE.

All participants will be encouraged to ask questions and share their thoughts on the topics under discussion.

Background

Improvements in healthcare require collaborative and interdisciplinary approaches to complex questions. That is why researchers and educators at the dental schools of the Universities of Michigan, Pittsburgh and North Carolina teamed up to move the care provided for their dental patients away from siloed, client-server electronic health record (EHR) systems in which data is isolated and difficult to access for healthcare research and student learning.

To accomplish this, the universities worked with Internet2 and ICE to form the Collaboration. This multi year-long endeavor drew upon lessons of successful team management to assist ICE in building a custom technology platform that can advance education, health and research.

Participation

Collaboration meetings are free of charge to attend but do require an invitation. To request an invitation, please contact our Advisory Board at info@Collaboration4HIT.org

Agenda

  • July 25 - Techie Day

Learn about ICE’s processes, architecture, and security. This is an opportunity for your technical team to take a look “under the hood” of ICE and meet the people behind the “engine.”

  • July 26 - System Day

Hear from your colleagues at schools that have designed components of ICE and experience ICE yourself in a hands-on session. Most importantly, provide ideas that will make ICE more valuable for all institutions.

  • July 27 - Collaboration Day

Understand the work that your colleagues are currently involved in. Plan the future additions to ICE and the programming priorities.

This is an excellent opportunity to experience the Collaboration at work and realize how the community has come together to create, govern, and benefit from an EHR that professionals cannot live without. To request an invitation, please contact the Advisory Board at info@Collaboration4HIT.org
