Few industries have undergone as much rapid change as health IT. Now, there are many successes, as well as challenges, in transformation.

This panel will give insight into the reflections and priorities of senior government IT leaders.

Potential topics include:

  • How policies, workforces and technology are guiding and adapting to transformative change and the critical programs that are driving transformation
