AUDACIOUS INQUIRY TO PRESENT AT UPCOMING MARYLAND HIMSS EVENT

Scott Afzal, Director of Health Information Systems at Audacious Inquiry, will present alongside David Horrocks, Senior VP of Erickson Retirement Communities, at the February 6, 2009 meeting of the Maryland chapter of HIMSS on the topic of health information exchange (HIE) in Maryland.  Their presentation is a component of an educational workshop entitled, “Leveraging Information Technologies to Extend the Reach.”

Afzal and Horrocks will present on the topic, “Health Information Exchange in Maryland: Current Efforts, Future Plans and the Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) Perspective.”  CRISP, a partnership among Erickson Retirement Communities, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, University of Maryland Medical System, and MedStar Health, began with the ambitious goal of developing a plan for statewide health information exchange (HIE) in Maryland. AI was selected to play a strong leadership role in the CRISP planning project. The meeting will be held at the Sheppard Pratt Conference Center in Towson, Maryland.
