Oct. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Electronic medical records (EMRs) have the potential to transform the delivery and application of medical services. Ranging from remote patient monitoring to patient understanding via social media, innovations in electronic health care are patient-focused, efficient, and highly integrated.  Whereas some regard the implementation of EMRs as a costly initiative, others foresee its capacity to enhance the quality of health care, to detect trends, and to even stop epidemics. Developments in health information technology promise to improve the cross-connectivity of health information platforms,  the accessibility of health records, the quality of care, and patient safety. EMRs, in particular, allow health care providers to collect, store, retrieve, and exchange information electronically. Yet these advantages are countered by privacy, financing, and timely implementation concerns.

The discussion will be moderated by health care law and policy expert Bruce Merlin Fried. The panelists represent three major German players in the global health care industry: Dirk Feldman, Director Strategy at Siemens Health Services, will present Siemens’ responses to the challenge of accountable health care innovations. Bernt C. Klein, Senior Vice President Americas at Detecon Inc. of the Deutsche Telekom Group, will discuss how mobile apps will revolutionize the health IT ecosystem. Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Renz, Corporate Vice President for Business Model & Healthcare Innovation at Boehringer Ingelheim, will address the relationship between medication adherence and electronic health record algorithms.

The discussion will take place on Wednesday, October 17, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the German House New York (871 United Nations Plaza, First Avenue, yxpjq btw. 48th & 49th Streets). To RSVP, click
