HIT and EHR resources


In recognition of the growing importance of health information technology (HIT) among the Academy's membership and their practices, the HIT-EHR resource center is your one-stop shop for all things related to health IT for dermatology offices.

The Academy offers a wealth of resources related to adopting an electronic health record system (EHR), implementing electronic prescribing (e-prescribing), complying with meaningful use, as well as learning more about policy developments and other regulatory compliance requirements related to HIT.
