A summit focusing on the electronic health record (EHR), health information technology (HIT) and long-term care will take place next month in Baltimore.

The 2010 LTPAC (Long-Term and Post-Acute Care) HIT Summit will focus on state health information exchange initiatives and state grant opportunities, EHR certification for long-term and post-acute care EHRs, and other timely topics. An “Interoperability Showcase” will demonstrate HIT interoperability for share care, transfer of care, personal health and e-prescribing. Eric Dishman, director of Health Innovation and Policy for Intel's Digital Health Group, will be the keynote speaker at the conference. The conference will be held June 7-8.

The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) will hold the conference in collaboration with long-term care related groups, including the American Health Care Association, the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, and the National Association for the Support of Long Term Care.
