For anyone having a tough time navigating the Health IT provisions of the recently-enacted ARRA stimulus plan, a new Webcast series hosted by Siemens Healthcare may be the perfect solution.

Siemens customers are invited to participate in the educational Webcasts, which discuss a broad range of relevant Health IT and stimulus topics. Future Webcasts include:

  • Friday, March 13, 2009:  “Healthcare policy and IT initiatives: What a difference a year makes”;  
  • Tuesday, March 17, 2009:  “Washington Update: Policies, Politics, and News Community Hospitals Can  Use”; and   
  • Friday, March 27, 2009: Pre-HIMSS Update.

Siemens will also host a series of joint on-site customer education activities at various industry events, including the MedSeries 4 Vision Users Conference in Salt Lake City, April 19 to 22 and the Siemens Healthcare Leadership Forum in Bonita Springs, Fla, May 3 to 5.
In addition, the company will be regularly updating its Executive Gateway Web site with the latest economic stimulus updates, as well as related material and activities. Additional Webcasts may be added in the future.
