FCC Celebrates National Health IT Week

At the FCC this week, the Connect2HeatlhFCC Task Drive is joining public and private stakeholders in celebrating National Health IT Week, September 15-19: http://www.healthit.gov/healthitweek/. Two big events of note:

  • Upon Tuesday, September 16, Commissioner Clyburn will present at the First Annual National Health IT Collaborative for the Underserved Conference: “Connecting for Health Empowerment Using Health Information Technology to Change Care in Multicultural Communities. ” This conference will present “cutting edge” strategies that use health information technology equipment to advance health and eliminate disparities: http://www.nhitunderserved.org/index.html

We’re very happy to contribute to the effort to raise awareness of Information about health Technology’s power to improve the health and healthcare of consumers across the nation. And, we all salute the health care providers, marketing communications carriers, technologists, innovators, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and many others who are using Health IT to transform how care is delivered, health information shared, quality assessed, and consumers engaged in their own into the health care.

We think that the transformative power of high speed in health will be realized whenever everyone, everywhere is connected to the suppliers, information, supports and services they need to get or stay healthy.
