Closing Out #NHITweek with the #HITsm Community

SNL_Coffee-Talk_FINALHIMSS and Health Standards are closing out the ninth annual National Health IT Week in style – and what better way to move the needle on health IT than a focused discussion on what’s working and what isn’t in health technology? This Friday, September 19 at 11 a.m. CT, HIMSS will moderate the weekly #HITsm chat with a special focus on health IT policy, value and innovation as a contribution to the #NHITweek conversation on Twitter.

All are welcome and encouraged to share their perspectives on these four topics. You can join the conversation here.

T1: What #healthIT value proposition would you prioritize for Congress? How will their buy-in/participation drive long-term change? #HITsm


T2: How can federal agencies more significantly impact progressive #healthIT implementation and use for their stakeholders? #HITsm
