Roundtable Series

The HITEQ Center is planning a series of discussions about what is on the horizon-- this includes the people, processes, and technologies related to UDS+, environmental impacts and environmental determinants of health (EDoH), and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Each session will be interactive and engaging and include time for health center sharing. This series is open to community health centers throughout the nation. If you are from a health center and are interested in enhancing your understanding of UDS+ demographic and clinical quality measures, environmental impacts and EDoH, and/or AI, you should join this series! This might include EHR or IT staff, clinical or operations staff, leadership, quality and population health staff, and/or clinical staff. Registration for each session is below.

Session 3: Tuesday, May 21st, 2024 at 1:00 ET: Environmental Preparedness for Health Centers Roundtable

Climate change-induced weather events such as heat waves, poor air quality, and flooding are increasing in frequency and intensity. Health centers are challenged to maintain their own operations and ensure continuity of care for their patients, particularly individuals who are more likely to be impacted by climate change-related disasters. In this session, health center participants and HITEQ facilitators discussed how health IT and EHRs can be used to identify and protect impacted populations. The discussion will be focused around three strategies: 1) developing a health center emergency response plan; 2) utilizing patient data to support patient resilience; and 3) developing communication outreach systems for weather emergencies.
