TEPR (Towards an Electronic Patient Record), the country’s leading health care technology conference and trade show, will be held May 14-18, 2005 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

TEPR 2005, presented by the Medical Records Institute (MRI), will cover a wide range of exciting speakers and topics–including the newly expanded Clinical Documentation Challenge and the Mock Trial on the Legality of Electronic (paperless) Records.

The five-day event offers numerous pre-conference tutorials, more than 450 expert presentations, an exhibit hall featuring more than 170 prominent technology vendors, and a faculty of more than 400 experienced and knowledgeable presenters.

Some of the hottest topics scheduled include Continuity of Care Record; e-Prescribing; workflow for Electronic Health Records (EHR); government incentives and plans; Return on Investment (RIO) issues regarding Electronic Medical Records (EMR); patient safety; mobile (wireless) solutions; and implementation issues of EHRs.

“The era of electronic health records has just begun,” noted C. Peter Waegemann, CEO of the Medical Records Institute. “Every provider, payer, and health informatics professional should go to TEPR 2005, as it is the one place where they can learn from others, collect new ideas, and familiarize themselves with the key issues.”

In addition to an impressive program, TEPR 2005 will feature prominent speakers such as:

  • David J. Brailer, M.D., Ph.D., national coordinator for health information technology, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services;
  • John Quinn, chief technology officer, Capgemini;
  • Daniel Sands, M.D., assistant professor of medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center; and
