Details: Dr. Ferranti will speak about how to “Bridge the Gap” in health care by leveraging health information technology. Dr.  Ferranti’s work includes the implementation of Duke’s Maestro Care system. With the HITECH Act of 2009, we can all expect health care settings that in the very near future (if not already) will use health IT for the purposes of improving patient care. See the government’s official site here for more information. This talk will give us an opportunity to consider what this change means for us as future health care professionals and for Duke University Health System.
