Why Should you Attend the October Summit?

At Our DoD/VA and Gov. HIT Summit, we provide a forum allowing our invited speakers representing the DoD, VA, Government Agencies, Academia, and Private Industry to describe the efforts that their organization is taking to better use IT technologies and informatics strategies for an improved and data driven, patient centered Military healthcare system.

Advances in information technology have vastly accelerated our ability to collect data, analyze it, and apply that data to better support informed decision making. It is through the realization of these IT technologies and strategies that we are able to directly benefit the patient's future healthcare outcomes.

The 2017 October Health IT Summit will provide valuable information on the current and prospective efforts supported by the U.S. Government to transform healthcare, and healthcare delivery through innovative IT solutions.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposium's content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the community from Senior Healthcare leaders, the IT Community, key policy-makers, as well as solution providers from industry and academia. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all involved organizations bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.

At our Summit You Will Have the Ability to  

  • Gain Education & Insight: Walk away with knowledge gained from our senior level speakers on some of the complex challenges facing health information technology professionals.
  • Build Partnerships: The agenda is designed to allow for ample networking opportunities and the ability to discover the most up-to-date HIT initiatives and technologies.
  • Influence: Help foster ideas! Share your own insight and knowledge during our interactive sessions. All attendees are given the opportunity to address our speaker faculty with their questions or comments and will receive a pre-summit questionnaire for precise questions and subject matters you would like our speakers to address.
