34th Annual Berlin Memorial Hospital Conference 2014

Green Lake, WI US
April 5, 2014

     The issues that will be addressed are the following; the future of critical access hospitals, how will the Affordable Health Care affect us as a rural hospital, and how do medical personal incorporate the electronic medical record into their work flow and continue to keep the patient at the center of their care.

     Currently there are many changes and uncertainties occurring in today’s healthcare.  Tim Size from Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative referred to the state of the critical access hospitals in the state of Wisconsin in an article “We clearly are in a time of significant uncertainty.” He also stated that “rural hospitals must include becoming more active as advocates for the people we serve”.  Patient centered care becomes an issue when there are new meaningful use requirements that must be met.  In William Ventres article on patient centered care and electronic health records he states we must examine how we use electronic health records in our communication with patients and become aware of when the electronic health record hinders our human connection and when it can enhance it.
