HIT Advocacy in 2019

Mark your calendars for January 16 & 17, 2019!

Come together with fellow healthcare technology professionals as we advocate for key Health Information Technology issues to help create safer and more efficient healthcare systems. We'll kick off Texas Health IT Day activities on Wednesday evening at the iconic Stephen F. Austin Hotel with a networking social and training. Thursday will include visits with Texas legislators to introduce and discuss important topics in the morning, speaker and wrap up with panel presentations in the afternoon. 

Join us to participate in talks, walks, calls and planning that include everything from meetings with our legislators to helping with our programs and social outreach. We look forward to having you and your colleagues joining us for a productive day in our state's capitol.

Topics of critical importance to Texans include:

  • Interoperability
  • Opioid Crisis
  • Virtual Health
