NJ-HITEC Offers Meaningful Minutes
NJ-HITEC has changed their Meaningful Use hour-long webinars into Meaningful Minutes so they can still continue to update providers, but in a more concise and shorter format. At the conclusion of each Webcast, providers will receive a one-page summary of the most important topics covered from that particular Webcast which can be shared with the rest of their team. The “Meaningful Minutes” will be offered every Wednesday from noon to 12:30 p.m. beginning on May 1 and will continue to help providers, nurses, and office staff stay up-to-date on the important changes in Meaningful Use, CMS incentive programs, and related Health IT issues. These Webcasts are open to all providers and their staff regardless of membership. View the list of upcoming topics.
