BIPA Names New IT Committee Chairman: Dr Inderpal Chhabra
Dr Chhabra will help to coordinate and lead this vital BIPA committee.
Last night, we had our first IT Committee meeting. It was well attended and productive. In brief we are moving ahead with our deal with Sequel Systems EMR. Some important language in the agreement was reviewed by the committee with legal counsel. Additionally we spoke about our plan for Clinical Integration and putting some regulations into place in regards to our expectations of the adoption of EMR and CI for Beacon IPA providers.
Furthermore, there was the exciting news of a potentially large subsidy to BIPA members who will be getting on EMR now.
All this will be discussed in more detail by Dr Chhabra at our next Steering Committee Meeting on Tuesday November 30th.
