Voyage to EHR

Voyage to EHRCompulink and co-sponsor Ocular Surgery News (OSN) are supporting practice consultant and OSN Section Editor John Pinto on his mission to support Hawaiian Eye Foundation through a "Voyage to EHR," a month-long solo trans-Pacific sailing adventure that John will undertake in 2012.

In addition to raising awareness for HEF's eye care and training work in the Pacific, John's voyage is meant to help educate and support the ophthalmic community in the transition many practices are making this year to Electronic Health Records (EHR).
