Tech Leadership Series: Health IT
The federal health IT landscape is in the midst of a revolution – involving electronic health records, newly interoperable systems, reams of new data, emerging technologies, and more. Agencies leading that charge are also tasked with delivering on the administration’s priorities for information technology as outlined in the President’s Management Agenda (PMA). This 30-minute program will bring together thought leaders from the public and private sectors to talk Health IT culture, best practices, and challenges.
The show will air twice on Thursday, July 11, 2019:
- 8:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
- 11:30 p.m.– 12:00 a.m.
