Event Overview

There is a wide spread view that targeted investment and implementation of information technology (IT) can help improve health system efficiency and effectiveness for patients, medical professionals, and related service providers. Yet the adoption of new approaches to facilitate quality-driven patient care, such as electronic health records (EHRs), has been slower than initially expected. Although progress is being made, there are still cultural, legal, and technical barriers that prevent full optimization of IT applications throughout the U.S. healthcare community.

Plan to attend this half-day program, which will focus on the very practical and actionable steps needed to help transform the national healthcare infrastructure through IT. Learn about the thoughtful injection of technical innovation into existing information architectures, and explore innovative IT programs that are being funded to stimulate immediate and measurable health impact on a national scale. This is your opportunity to hear from subject matter experts who will discuss a bold vision for health IT that will lead to better patient care across the nation-- characterized by the secure collection, storage, and sharing of accurate health information.

Attendees will hear from seasoned professionals serving the federal and state health community and learn how they are working individually and collectively to foster more efficient national systems that are designed to reduce administrative costs, enable broader access to quality care, and establish a trusted foundation for 21st century national healthcare.

Register today to update your understanding on the role of IT in helping to:

  • Influence better medical decisions with complete information, when and where     needed
  • Improve public health initiatives and response with more timely disease identification
  • Ensure patient privacy and more reliable clinical record-keeping
