From all 50 states and overseas, our customers and employees are arriving in sunny Orlando! From sunrise until long after sunset, crews have been hard at work choreographing tomorrow’s kickoff of the 2016 eClinicalWorks National Conference here at the Orlando World Center Marriott! Our social media wall is already abuzz with photos and posts, of plane departures, bus arrivals, smiling faces, and shout outs. And our social media and selfie contests are already under way. Check pages 12 and 13 of your Conference program book for complete details and post, post, post — to #eCW16 and #eCWSelfie.
Our product experts are onsite and at the top of their games, ready to unveil the new features and functionalities that are now being rolled out across our U.S. and international markets. And eCW team members and technicians are putting the finishing touches on tomorrow’s much-anticipated Keynote from CEO Girish Navani, which promises to deliver a high-energy introduction to four unforgettable days of learning, networking, and sheer fun.
The thousands of medical professionals coming together this weekend to deepen their understanding will find a company and industry that have gone far beyond the EHR. eClinicalWorks was inspired by a vision of making primary care better, easier and safer. But from those basic beginnings we have traveled to other frontiers, such as Population, Employer, and Behavioral Health.
Together with you, our customers, we are exploring new ways to harness the power of data analytics. We are clearing away the obstacles in the way of more efficient workflows, practice management, and revenue cycle management. And we are presenting clear roadmaps for providers to prosper in an acronym-laden world — of MACRA, MIPS and more — that is moving every more rapidly toward quality-based payment models.
Tonight, our signs and banners are in place. We’re wired for the awesome sights and sounds of tomorrow’s Keynote and Product Showcase. Our booths are ready. Our staff are pumped. And from the hotel lobby to quiet restaurant corners, our customers are meeting and greeting one another, exchanging stories, renewing acquaintances, making new friends, and preparing to make the connections that will transform their practices — and an entire industry — in the days, weeks and months ahead.
The eClinicalWorks 2016 National Conference is about to begin!
