Tackling the HIV Crisis Through EHRs & Education

Description

In 2017, Florida ranked number one in new HIV diagnoses in the United States, and state and local leaders responded vigorously to adopt a strategy to reverse this alarming population health trend.

As the state began to tackle the crisis, a Tallahassee-based group of clinical EHR enthusiasts saw an opportunity to leverage EHR data to assist public health clinicians with one of their primary goals, to protect people at risk for HIV with PrEP, a medication that can prevent HIV infections.

In this session, attendees will learn how Florida used a tiered approach of health IT technology and education to change the conversation between patients and doctors that lead to more than 40,000 PrEP related services being delivered during the program’s first six months.

This session is part of a special program called HIMSS20 Pop Health & SDoH. Extra fees and separate registration is required.
