About the Event

Transformation is on the agenda in government healthcare. Digital services, automation, analytics and artificial intelligence are just a few of the technologies that are beginning to have a major impact on nearly every aspect of healthcare, from medical research to operational management and patient care. But transformation requires more than new technology.

AFCEA Bethesda's 12th annual Health IT Summit will bring together more than a thousand senior executives and technology professionals from across government and industry to discuss the technology, policy and workforce strategies that make transformation possible. Throughout the program, speakers/panels will focus on distilling actionable intelligence from the current wave of transformation efforts.

The program will be highly interactive, leveraging live polling and other tools to improve the exchange of ideas among speakers and attendees.
