9:00 amElectronic Health Records: Which One Is For You?
Peter Kenny, MD, FAAP
Stuart Weinberg, MD, FAAP
The AAP as an organization desires to promote electronic health record use among its members, but AAP members have been facing two major barriers: unclear return on investment and systems that do not work well in pediatric settings. In this session, we will discuss the economics of EHRs, with an eye toward return on investment for pediatric group practices. We will also learn how to identify features of EHR systems that ensure they will work successfully in the pediatric setting. How one actually implements EHR systems (hardware selection, workflow design, system customization, training, and support) will wrap up this energizing session. The goal of the session is to help future users of EHRs achieve a working familiarity with EHR applications such that the participants will leave the session ready, able and eager to select and purchase an EHR for their clinical practice.

2:00 pmScientific Abstract Session
Clinical Information technology is an emerging field with new applications, devices and software entering the clinical arena every day. In order to allow section members and general pediatricians to keep up-to-date with the latest scientific developments in clinical information technology, COCIT presents a scientific abstract and poster session each year. The quality of abstracts in the past years has turned this session into the premier research venue for pediatric clinical informatics. Special emphasis has been placed in the past years on evaluative studies that evaluate the impact of new technologies on the pediatrician and his patients.
