The 5th Annual Allscripts Eastern Region Users Group Summer Conference was held last week at the posh, “boutique design” W Hotel in downtown Atlanta, GA. True to its motto, “For the Users, By the Users,” the ERUG 2015 conference proved to be a collaborative and informative educational and networking event for clients and vendors alike.
The educational sessions focused on topics such as patient tracking, optimization, ICD-10, and patient engagement. In addition, Allscripts shared their roadmap and updates for the TouchWorksTM product and provided color around services and solutions including EHR upgrades, mobility, Meaningful Use reporting, clinical notes strategy, and architecture advisory. We also had meaningful discussions with clients on topics including EHR downtime, custom interface development and support, CIE migrations, and application portfolio management.
Galen’s Vice President of Clinical Solutions, Rita Owens, presented on Galen’s Note Form Reporting solution, which aides TouchWorksTM V11 Note Form users in efficient and successful PCMH, Medicare Advantage, and ACO documentation and tracking. Rita also shared new Note Form Reporting charge automation functionality and recent client success stories.
Of course, a conference wouldn’t be complete without some fun! Galen sponsored both the networking reception Wednesday evening and the Cirque du Soleil ERUG member appreciation event on Thursday evening at Opera Nightclub.
Special recognition to ERUG President Jeff Ciccanti and the rest of the board for their tireless efforts in organizing a spectacular conference and ensuring it went off without a hitch.
