CCALAC is pleased to announce our 1st Annual Health Information Technology (HIT) Summit. The event virtually brings together organizations and partners across LA County to share innovative HIT strategies and solutions to improve patient care.
Healthcare technology adoption continues to be on the rise as an essential component to patient care within healthcare organizations, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The intersection of healthcare and IT is transforming patient care and delivery of care models. It is important for today’s healthcare industry leaders, providers, and support staff to work together during these challenging times and understand the value that health information technology (HIT) provides in a changing healthcare landscape.
After the Summit, participants will:
- Gain insight on what health care organizations are doing to work and communicate better internally and externally on HIT initiatives to improve delivery of care models.
- Learn strategies and best practices for patient engagement and communication beyond the patient portal and how they can help your organization during the pandemic.
- Understand the obstacles to sharing patient data across healthcare systems while learning how organizations are working together to overcome these challenges and be a part of the solution.
- Build your knowledge on HIT tools and how they can help you deliver better care to your patients while lowering costs.
