The HSPH Public Health & Technology Forum is hosting the 1st annual Public Health & Technology Conference on Friday, May 1 featuring keynote John Halamka, CIO of Boston Beth Israel Deaconness Hospital and Harvard Medical, and panelists Karen Bell (ONC), Blackford Middleton (Clinical Informatics Research & Development, Partners HealthCare), John Loonsk (ONC), John Moore (Chilmark Research), Ashish Jha (HSPH), Isaac Kohane (Boston Children’s Medical Informatics Program), Jonathan Bush (AthenaHealth), Sharona Hoffman (Case Western Law School).

Despite health IT’s promise of better, faster, and cheaper health care, adoption of electronic health records in the US remains low. This conference brings together many of the leaders in the field to explore the potential to use health IT to improve health delivery, the challenges of health information exchange and the impact of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on health IT.

Registration is free and all are welcome (www.hsph.harvard.edu/phat).
