Who would have thought it possible to bring together so many healthcare providers for three days of education, discussion, and fun? Our 2020 National Conference was not only the first time that our event was entirely virtual but also the first time that we’ve had over 15,000 attendees signing in from all 50 states.
Preparation, participation are key
At first, it was months away. Then weeks. And now, it’s only days until the fall’s biggest event, which brings together people from across the nation, united in a common purpose. No, we’re not talking about the election — we’re talking about the 2020 eClinicalWorks and healow National Conference, which brings together thousands of healthcare professionals for three days of virtual learning and sharing!

Health centers in perfect position to make a critical difference
The COVID-19 crisis has placed enormous strain on the things that constitute community — connecting in person, discussing problems, and supporting patients with their health needs. It is natural that community health centers lead the fight against the effects of the pandemic.
Preparation is one of the best defenses against potential threats. When it comes to maintaining a safe healthcare facility, establishing and continually making sure that safety protocols are followed is essential.

Patients are busy and often don’t have time to sit on hold or find an appointment time that matches up with their hectic schedules. That’s where a safe and secure online appointment booking method like healow® Open Access® comes in.

Practices turning essential tools for sustainability
More than six months after the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a global pandemic, the world continues to search for hope amid great loss. According to the WHO, some 170 potential vaccines are under development, with more than two dozen already in clinical trials.
Whether it’s a tornado sweeping down over a town in the Midwest, a lightning storm knocking out the power for a few days, or a network that just isn’t getting you where you need to go, it’s not always possible to know what will come up tomorrow.
You’re walking on a dirt path – medium-length prairie grass rustles next to you as you look over at the angular red rock formations. You hear a faint sound – like someone rolling a set of dice in a plastic cup – and keep moving forward. The sound stops.

Why getting the finances right matters
