More and more we find that IT is helping healthcare organizations advance in myriad ways. In honor of the monumental strides made possible in healthcare we celebrate with U.S. National Health IT Week. For the week’s kickoff, we were introduced to #NHITWeek’s Points of Engagement.

The five Points of Engagement outline the benefits of tech’s integration in healthcare and prompt calls-to-action including the need to expand access to stable broadband for telehealth.
As we approach Healthcare IT Week, please join us in recognizing Dr. Brad Kehler 👨⚕️, vice president of clinical informatics in this week’s edition of #WhatDoYouDoWednesdays.

Also prominent during #NHITWeek is the recognition of providers and health IT professionals including Dr. Brad Kehler, Vice President of Applied Clinical Informatics for HCA Healthcare.
Once electronic health information is flowing from the patient to the provider, advances in coordinated, value-based and patient-centric care will be even greater than anything we can imagine today. #MyHealthEData #NHITweek

Another aspect of #NHITWeek that’ll continue is a plenitude of conversations – especially those surrounding topics such as the MyHealthEData Initiative. Tweet’s like Seema Verma’s express the importance of third-party applications’ ability to leverage patient’s data and the need for patients to also have access to their own health data.
“#Cybersecurity isn’t just about #datasecurity; it’s also a matter of life and death. Hackers don’t rest. We don’t either,” says @NetAppATeam’s @Michael81082https://t.co/grGFvZtU7v pic.twitter.com/q42cGSQyp4
