Point of care education represented by new industry association
Audio Q&A: DSN had the opportunity to speak with the co-founders of the Point of Care Communication Council — Dan Stone of AccentHealth (pictured) and Tom McGuinness of PatientPoint — which is hosting its inaugural meeting June 12. The new association couldn't have come at a better time as healthcare providers look forward to the kind of outcomes-based medicine practice that will be driven by the Jan. 1, 2014 implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Because in an effort to achieve those better outcomes at the patient level, practitioners will need more health information at the point of care. Listen in to hear how the association is taking form.
