Netsmart Offers Clinically-Focused Web Seminars for Health and Human Services Providers

No-Cost Web Seminars Educate, Enlighten and Advance Industry Providers in Era of Healthcare Change

Overland Park, Kan., Aug. 6,  2013 – Today’s era of healthcare reform has created a world where care coordination is reality, integration is lifesaving and technology builds bridges to high quality,

consumer-centric care. It's no longer about what the clinician types into the electronic health record (EHR), but it's the value that the EHR delivers in improving care.

To provide fresh perspectives in a rapidly-evolving healthcare landscape, Netsmart is offering a series of no-cost, clinically focused educational Web seminars for health and human services providers. Complete descriptions, presenter biographies and registration are available at  

The series includes these topics:
