About the Event

In many sectors, the goals of IT modernization are framed primarily in traditional IT terms, with an emphasis on efficiency, performance, and security. In healthcare, that’s just the starting point. Ultimately, healthcare organizations are looking to drive improvements not just in the IT infrastructure but in the management and delivery of healthcare operations and patient care.

AFCEA Bethesda’s 11th annual Health IT Summit will bring together more than 1,000 senior executives and IT professionals from across industry and government to explore strategies for leveraging modern IT technology and tactics to advance healthcare outcomes. Across two days, participants will discuss new and emerging trends in digital services, artificial intelligence, automation, health analytics, and cybersecurity.
