National HIT Symposium at MIT, June 29 – July 2, 2009


The recently-enacted American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will
provide more than $35 billion in funding for health information
technology. The health care reform debate in the Congress seems to be
coming to a head this summer. In this context, health care leaders are
grappling with how new emerging policies will impact their
organizations and how to assure that their organizations are
well-positioned to access the significant stimulus funding now emerging
from the federal government.

Symposium, conducted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in
Cambridge, MA, is a must-attend event, that will help leaders from
every sector of health care, including those representing consumers,
employers, payers, providers, and vendors, gain timely intelligence and
practical insights on how to benefit from the health IT programs and
provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Participants
will hear from the policy leaders responsible for many of the programs
within the federal government, as well as nationally recognized experts
on topics such as privacy, financing, standards, and technical
assistance. In addition, practical insights on how to effectively
access funds from grant programs, and how to support effective health
IT adoption will be shared by veterans in the field. The final day of
the Symposium will be devoted to the role of health IT in health care
reform, which promises to be a hot topic as Congress deliberates health
care reform legislation in the next two months.

Health Information Technology Symposium at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology is the only in-depth executive education event on health
information technology in the United States. It is a must-attend event
for anyone who is responsible for leading and developing programs
responsive to the health IT provisions in the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act. Register today!
