This June, CureMD — as a partner in the advancement of health information technology to help improve healthcare — is joining approximately 150 public and private sector organizations in Washington, DC, to participate in the Fifth Annual National Health IT Week (June 14 – 18, 2010). National Health IT Week 2010 is a partner-led collaborative forum where public and private healthcare constituents work in unison to educate industry and policy stakeholders on the value of health IT.
Now, with the enactment of economic stimulus and healthcare reform legislation, there is no better time for the health IT community to come together under one umbrella to examine the current policy landscape and raise awareness on the benefits of heath IT for the U.S. healthcare system.
Initiated in 2006 by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), National Health IT Week has emerged as a landmark occasion for bringing together diverse national healthcare stakeholders to develop neutral, common ground for the advancement of health IT adoption with “One Voice, One Vision.”
The week consists of several partner events, including:
- Capitol Hill Steering Committee on Telehealth and Healthcare Informatics Technology Showcase
- National Health IT Week Press Conference on Capitol Hill
- National Health IT Week Networking Reception
- HIMSS 9th Annual Policy Summit
- 2010 HIMSS Government Health IT Conference
Health IT holds a prominent role in Washington D.C., and National Health IT Week 2010 participants —vendors, provider organizations, payers, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, government agencies, industry/professional associations, research foundations, and consumer protection groups— are working together to elevate national attention to the advantages of advancing health IT
