Day 2 of NHIT Week is under wraps and the Twitter commentary has been fast and furious! There was a lot of discussion around some of the challenges of harnessing health IT – like unlocking data, ensuring security and building better collaboration. We also saw some great sharing around solutions, including digital health tools, smarter spending and ways to better manage disease and reduce readmissions. We were also excited to see a few thoughts about the important role senior care plays in the overall healthcare space.

Check out some of the best tweets throughout the day that made us question, made us think and made us nod vigorously in agreement. And share your own perspective this week with the hashtag #NHITWeek!
