Take Action: National Health IT Week 2017

Sep 28, 2017 | Kim Rodgers

National Health IT Week (NHIT Week), which will take place October 2-6, 2017, is a nationwide awareness week that highlights the value of healthcare IT and offers healthcare stakeholders an opportunity to unite under one banner, one message: the benefits health information technology can bring to U.S. healthcare. This year, NHIT Week’s points of engagement will focus on: Supporting Healthcare Transformation, Expanding Access to High Quality Care, Increasing Economic Opportunity, and Making Communities Healthier.

NACCHO is pleased to participate in National Health IT Week as a partner, and we encourage our local health department members to join as partners, as well. In addition, you can:

NACCHO supports the advancement of health information technology through our Public Health Informatics project portfolio, which co-hosts the biennial Public Health Informatics Conference alongside the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology & Laboratory Services (CSELS). The next PHI Conference will take place August 20-23 in Atlanta, GA. Visit our conference website to see a message from the conference co-chairs and stay tuned for more information about this great event.
