Become a Strategic Partner
For the past several years, a broad consensus has emerged to expand the use of health information technology (HIT), and national policy has focused on a goal of electronic health records (EHRs) for everyone by 2014. This consensus encourages providers and consumers to use HIT in order to significantly enhance the quality, safety, efficiency, effectiveness, outcomes, and cost of healthcare. A significant portion of healthcare costs are consumed by persons over 65 years old, making this consensus particularly relevant for senior consumers and their healthcare providers.
The current HIT national agenda continues to focus on acute and primary care settings. While these settings are important, payers and providers who coordinate care across settings have special opportunities to leverage HIT; consumers need this to happen. The LTPAC HIT Summit co-sponsors wrote the 2010-2012 LTPAC HIT Road Map to address these issues.
The summit will focus on national agenda-setting strategies, industry initiatives, national policy and stimulus initiatives, HIT education, interoperability demonstrations, and vendor interaction. We expect more than 200 attendees representing consumers, healthcare professionals, payers, regulators, congressional staff, software developers, and others.
