The Iowa Podiatric Medical Society (IPMS) will be hosting the annual Heartland Podiatry Conference next week in Des Moines, Iowa. The meeting will take place over the course of four days (from October 3 to 6) and is being held in conjunction with the Nebraska Podiatric Medical Society and the Scientific Committee.
Conference organizers are expecting podiatrists from Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, and other surrounding states, as well as podiatry EMR vendors and other industry-leading exhibitors.
There will also be multiple workshops offered throughout the four-day conference, and lectures will be held on a variety of topics, ranging from wound care to risky podiatric problems. Some of the stand out lectures on the agenda include: “Ankle Instability Correction Using an Interference Screw” and “My Most Interesting Case by the Heartland Scientific Committee.”
The Podiatry Institute is hosting one of its last seminars of the year in San Diego, California this week called Update 2012 Reconstructive Surgery of the Foot Ankle. The conference will run from September 27th through the 30th and is being co-hosted by the San Diego Podiatric Medical Society.
The four-day seminar will feature lectures and workshops, as well as live podiatry EMR software demos from leading EMR vendors. Presenters will talk about the new techniques and technologies available to podiatric doctors and surgeons, and a special emphasis will be placed on the common challenges facing podiatrists and how they can avoid complications.
All too often, pediatricians opt for generalized EMR systems only to find out later that their software does not fully meet the needs of their specialty. Though generic software systems are able to perform basic functions and provide access to generic templates and forms, pediatric medicine requires features and capabilities that all-encompassing EMRs do not usually include. The absence of such features often forces generic EMR users to keep parts of their workflow on paper, creating a gap in patient care. The solution to this problem is adopting a pediatric EMR system with specialty-specific configurations.
The American Academy of Pain Management (the Academy) is meeting in Phoenix, Arizona this week for its 23rd Annual Clinical Meeting. The meeting runs from September 20 to 23, during which time its more than 1,500 attendees will learn about the latest trends, products and services, such as pain management EHR software, enhancing pain management care.
Among the caregivers attending the four-day conference will be physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse anesthetists, psychologists, physical therapists, and other pain management specialists, all eager to learn about and discuss improvements in care delivery and patient outcomes. The 23rd edition of the Annual Clinical Meeting marks the fourth time the conference will be held in collaboration with the University of Arizona’s Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine.
