Meaningful Use Webcast Transitions to Internet Radio

Last week at HIMSS we transitioned our weekly MU Live! webcast to the Internet radio station MU Live! debuted last July as a thirty minute talk radio-style webcast. It quickly grew in audience size and participation.

Transitioning the show to Internet radio allows participants to listen in two ways: they can call in to a designated number or stream the show live though the launch of an Internet radio player.  Participants can also join in the conversation through twitter or our private chat forum on the radio station.

Each week on Tuesdays at 2pm ET we interview our guests on a topic related to meaningful use and other related health IT topics. Next week we not only have a special guest but we are extending the show to 45 minutes. Rob Anthony of CMS and one of the writers of the NPRM will discuss the proposed notice and take your questions. You can register here to receive details of how to join in and get your reminder on Tuesday for the show.

Upcoming guests for MU Live! include:

  • Amit Trivedi, the Program Manager for the Healthcare division of ICSC Labs
  • Jim St.Clair, Interoperatibility and Standards Chair from HIMSS
  • David Finn, the Health IT Officer for Symantec and former CIO of Texas Childrens Hospital in Houston
  • Dr. Bill Hersh, Informatics chair at OSHU, international speaker and author of  The Informatics Professor Blog
  • Brian Ahier, President at Gorge Health Connect, Inc. Health IT Blogger and leading voice on health information excange.

HITECH Answers is also announcing the production of its second radio show, The Healthcare Compass, which will make its debut on March 15 at 3 pm ET and hosted by Dan Munro. Dan is a health IT pundit and contributor to The show will focus on emerging trends and innovations in health information technology.
