Save the Date: Consumer Health IT Summit on 9/10/12

Save the Date: September 10, 2012 – Consumer Health IT Summit
Expanding Access to Health Information

Are you working to advance consumer access to health information? Last year 1,400 people tuned in to the Consumer Health IT Summit to hear about new public and private sector efforts to make health information more easily available to consumers and to engage them in using their data to improve their care and well being. This year we are celebrating the progress we've made together and preparing to take it to the next level with the 2012 Consumer Health IT Summit. Look for:
  • Announcements about new policies and federal initiatives
  • Examples of trailblazing companies that are enabling widespread consumer access to health information
  • Compelling consumer tools that help people to make use of their data
  • Creative approaches to motivate and support consumer engagement in health
  • Exciting developments related to the "Blue Button"
The 2012 Consumer Health IT Summit will bring together federal leaders including: Todd Park, U.S. Chief Technology Officer and Farzad Mostashari, National Coordinator, Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, and inspiring leaders from the private and non-profit sectors. ONC’s Pledge Program has grown more than ten-fold since last year—the 2012 Consumer Health IT Summit is a chance to learn from and share your experiences with others who are leading the charge to empower consumers to be better partners in their health.
