Challenges and Breakthroughs: Our Top 4 Webinars of 2021
One of my favorite responsibilities here at Interlace Health is preparing and presenting our near-monthly webinars. Doing so puts me in contact with some of the sharpest, most dedicated people in the health information management sphere—people whose passion for making their operations better inspires us at Interlace to make our solutions better, too.
These people have had their work cut out for them in 2021.
The COVID-19 pandemic created staggering challenges for everyone in healthcare in any capacity. Their efforts since March 2020 have been nothing short of heroic. At the same time, the unprecedented disruptions caused by the pandemic sparked new ideas and practices in virtual healthcare, and many patients found they liked these new experiences better than the old ones.
Our 2021 webinars have captured both the challenges and the breakthroughs of the past couple of years. Here are four that generated some of the strongest response from people like you.
Our top four 2021 webinars
COVID-19 Brings eConsent to the Forefront, March 25.
What strategies helped King’s Daughter Medical Center—a vital community hospital in Brookhaven, Mississippi—prevail through the cancellation of so many elective procedures in 2020? KDMC’s Carl Smith, a recent Info-Tech CIO Award recipient, shared his firsthand insights into empowering clinicians through digital health technology.
I moderated this panel of Interlace Health experts who have been in the trenches with health systems since the pandemic began. They discussed how they’ve helped CIOs and HIM leaders make a smooth transition to an electronic consent process that’s fully integrated with their EHRs—a key factor in getting elective procedures back to full capacity.
A Sign of the Times: How eSignature is a Game Changer, September 23.
Even people familiar with eSignature technology may not be exploiting its full potential to accept more patients, increase revenue, and reduce time spent on manual tasks. In this webinar, I demonstrated how to leverage eSignature capabilities for maximum benefit across four critical service lines: Cardiology, Orthopedics, Gastroenterology and Pulmonology.
Nearly 60% of CIOs say their top post-COVID-19 financial goal is “Getting the most out of existing IT purchases.” That requires EHR optimization via improved form processes. In this webinar I discussed how one hospital’s move to digital forms management became a vital investment in improved EHR integration and data management.

A window into your healthcare data challenges
Our webinars offer our audiences a window into the two, interconnected goals every health system CIO must pursue:
- Delivering better patient experiences and outcomes
- Enabling efficiencies that boost staff productivity and revenues
I see these priorities linked—interlaced, if you will—throughout every well-managed healthcare organization. It’s fascinating to me how different health systems make different approaches work, and that’s a theme I try to explore in every webinar.
And the questions we receive during our webinars are invaluable! Hearing your concerns helps us re-examine our service and solutions to make sure we’re helping you meet your challenges head-on. Plus, your questions also give me ideas for new webinars!
What webinar subjects should we address in 2022? What issues or concerns are foremost for you?
Thanks—and I look forward to seeing you at next year’s webinars!
