Join us August 30th for an overview of the HIT challenges in the next five years. As EHRs become more widespread, technology becomes more mobile and new sources of data are added, how does IT foster research and innovation while balancing operational concerns and support the business through a changing landscape? Rather than viewing the landscape as a single challenge, HIT organizations will need to facilitate a portfolio of diverse initiatives.
