Under the changes to the Stark Laws, a number of hospitals and PHO organizations are offering medical practices an EMR that is sponsored, and/or offered by the hospital or PHO.

This session will help you understand the strategies needed to establish and maintain a balanced relationship with your EMR provider who also happens to be a key patient care partner.
