ONC Communications Team | February 27, 2010

Health IT professionals from around the country will be convening in Atlanta at the beginning of March for the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s (HIMSS) Annual Conference. HIMSS will provide a unique opportunity for ONC to speak to, learn from and interact with 27,000 leaders in the health IT field. This year’s theme — change is everywhere, opportunity is here — aptly sets the tone for ONC’s participation and related presentations that will highlight the administration’s efforts to support the adoption of health IT and the promotion of secure, nationwide health information exchange. Here are some of the events we will be participating in at the conference:

ONC hopes to engage a diverse range of health IT stakeholders in dialogue and discuss the work that needs to be done over the coming year to transform our healthcare system through the use of IT.
