Take Action: National Health IT Week 2017

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.
