2012 Consumer Health IT Summit
Expanding Access to Health Information
Due to an overwhelming response, this event has reached capacity. You can view the live webcast at www.hhs.gov/live on Monday at 10 am EDT.
At this year's Consumer Health IT Summit we are celebrating the progress the public and private sector have made in making health information more easily available to consumers and engaging them to use their data to improve their care and well being. This year we are taking this movement to the next level.
· 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 and inspiring trailblazers 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.
