Did y'all get a chance to tune into WIHI's discussion about hospital readmissions with Dr. Amy Boutwell and Dr. Thomas Lee? If you did, I'm sure you can't wait for the next installment of WIHI.

Well, you need not wait any longer! Tune in TOMORROW with Madge Kaplan for a discussion on Health IT and electronic medical records (EMR) with Dr. John Halamka, Chief Information Officer of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Dr. Brian Robson, Clinical Director for eHealth across NHS National Services Scotland, at 2PM. Don't forget to register here.

Just a reminder:
WIHI is an exciting new audio program from IHI. It’s free, it’s timely, it's interactive, and it’s designed to help dedicated legions of health care improvers worldwide keep up with some of the freshest and most robust thinking and strategies for improving patient care.

Each episode is 60 minutes and there's a new broadcast every other week. You can listen to WIHI live— via computer or telephone or both — or you can download an archived audio file for listening later (see the Technology tab for more information). All you need to do is register in advance.

The WIHI broadcasts will be hosted by IHI’s Madge Kaplan, who brings a wealth of experience to WIHI from her years reporting on health care for public radio. IHI’s Director of Communications since 2004, and the regular “voice” of the 100,000 Lives and 5 Million Lives Campaign conference calls, Madge is known for her ability to create a shared space for lively and enriching discussions.
