NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 13, 2007) - Health Data Management (HDM), the number one magazine on health care information technology, announces the premiere of the CLINICAL AUTOMATION SUMMIT: STRATEGIES FOR ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS. The event will be held in the Chicago area at the Westin O'Hare in Rosemont, IL, on Sept. 17-18, 2007, with a pre-conference workshop on Sept. 16, 2007.

Featured speakers of the Summit include keynotes from William A. Yasnoff, MD, PhD, managing partner of NHII Advisors and architect of National Health Information Infrastructure, along with Brandon Savage, MD, chief medical officer & general manager, Global Marketing of GE Healthcare Integrated IT Solutions. Howard Anderson, HDM's associate editor, will chair the event.

The debut of the CLINICAL AUTOMATION SUMMIT: STRATEGIES FOR ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS, is designed to provide attendees with ground-breaking technology tools and best practice strategies needed to successfully implement electronic health records.

"For the medical community, implementing electronic health records (EHRs) can improve the quality of care, reduce medical errors, and advance abilities to gain more managed care contracts," said Anderson. "This event provides a unique opportunity for CIOs, directors of medical and nursing informatics, group practice administrators, physicians, nurses, medical directors and chiefs of staff to gain that significant edge over competitors that lack this automation."

Brian Cronin, group publisher, Health Data Management, adds, "We saw the need for an event that provided expert testimony from actual players in the space, such as physicians and nurses, as well as key consultants. These industry experts will present attendees with beneficial tips and tools on past successes and failures that can be taken back to their medical communities and implemented -- an invaluable opportunity that cannot be missed."

Invited attendees include: CIOs, Group Practice Administrators, Medical Records Managers, Medical Directors and Chiefs of Staff, Directors of Medical and Nursing Informatics, Physicians and Nurses.
