Important facts about HIT

The need to use health information technology (HIT) to improve patient care, health care quality and clinical outcomes has emerged as a matter of national policy with the American Recovery and Investment Act, and a significant amount of money will be spent to provide incentives for HIT adoption and training for a future workforce. Join us as we explore the diversification opportunities and what it can mean for your company in a two-part series.

Join us on October 20 at Automation Alley Headquarters as we cover critical information on the state of HIT at the national, state and county levels and how it is relevant to your business. At this event we will also discuss the importance of understanding and leveraging “meaningful use” to benefit your business and what legal aspects a business needs to consider when involved in health care
