There is an influx of technology in the clinical environments, especially regarding HIT. We continue to see a heavy investment of $$ and time in IT solutions (i.e. EMR, scheduling). What have we been able to do/learn as a result of these IT solutions? How have financial, operational or clinical outcomes been impacted? Is there an ROI for HIT? The format for this forum will be a Q&A panel discussion rather than presentations.
