from the Publisher Long Island H Dan Senkiw PUBLISHER Long Island DANSENKIW@MDNEWS.COM (914) 967-6565 Publisher: Dan Senkiw Managing Editor: Maggie Neff ELLO, AND WELCOME to the November issue of MD News Long Island. On the cover, we spotlight Rajeev Vohra, M.D., FACS, Director of Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery at South Nassau Communities Hospital and President of Bariatrics and Laparoscopy, P.C. Committed to provid- ing patients with the education and tools to prepare for successful weight loss journeys, Dr. Vohra and a team of dedicated specialists offer an integrative care program. Dr. Vohra describes new technologies and minimally invasive laparoscopic methods that transform bariatric surgery into a safe, highly reproducible discipline. In our feature story this month, we'll examine the keys to successfully meeting the requirements set forth by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for meaningful use of health information technology. As health care reform progresses and leaders in the field begin to emerge, a series of best practices and solutions to the riddle of meaningful use is becoming clear. You'll hear from a health information technology expert who asserts that understanding the goals, costs and logistics of achieving meaningful use upfront will save eligible hospitals and providers time and money in the long run. As the landscape of the American health system rap- idly changes, so, too, are the operations and technologies that guide the practice of medicine. In this and all issues of MD News, we strive to provide content pertaining to these and other matters that impact you most. Feel free to contact me to learn how you can contribute to the conversation.
