MI2 presents OpenEMR ROI as part of ACO solution

MI2 presents OpenEMR ROI as part of ACO solution 150 150 Tony McCormick

Last weekend Dr Bowen and Tony McCormick presented information on Meaningful Use as it pertains to the Physicians Practice, talked about the “Open Source Way” and did a short demo of OpenEMR 4.0.
