NHIT Week has sadly come to an end, but not without initiating prodigious conversations focused on healthcare’s biggest challenges and goals in health IT. From how to prevent the complications of human error to how the industry is navigating value-based care initiatives, the exchanges we saw on Twitter between healthcare professionals certainly helped drive awareness on the value of technology in healthcare. It truly is a movement and we’ve been honored to be a part of if this year.
With that in mind, take a peek at some of the best tweets we saw from day 5 that encourages us to embrace data sharing, personalized precision medicine, data analytics programs and interoperability all around. If you haven’t answered our survey questions, make sure you do. We’d love your input on the impact of technology in healthcare. And keep the conversation going by using the hashtag #NHITWeek!
