REGISTER HERE for the NEXT webinar 3-D, at 7 pm EST/4 pm PST on December 12, 2022. From 3-D printing to presurgical planning using 3-D modeling, this webinar will explore how 3-D technology is being utilized in vascular surgery today.
Today, we are republishing the SVS Webinar from September 7, 2022, Hacking the EMR: Making the EMR work for you.
A blessing and a curse, the EMR is an integral part of the modern practice of providing medical care. The Community Practice Section, Health Information Technology Committee, and Wellness Committee have collaborated to develop a webinar about making the EMR work for you. We review how to manage the EMR to benefit your daily practice needs; make the EMR work for small independent practices, including OBLs; how to manage EMR burnout; and a few hacks to make the EMR work for you.
