This week is National Health IT Week, and we’re jumping in headfirst here at CNSI. If the event seems tailor-made for a company like CNSI, with a deep passion for its work in critical health IT projects, well, that’s because it is. The events, webinars, and tweet chats span across the spectrum on those topics in which we care about deeply—cyber security, consumer engagement, infrastructure and innovation.
Created back in 2006 by Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and the Institute for e-Health Policy, the week is dedicated to “celebrating the benefits that health information technology can bring to U.S. healthcare.” We’ll be deeply involved but we’re hoping that you – our loyal readership – will get involved as well. How? Glad you asked.
The National Health IT Week site is a great resource including tips on how you can spread awareness from posting on social media to writing an op-ed for a local publication. Speaking of social media, our team will be sharing insights from scheduled webinars and live Tweet sessions throughout the week. We encourage you to engage with us on our various platforms. Feel free to tag us in your posts @CNSIcorp and don’t forget to use the #NHITWeek hashtag.
There’s also a feature on the National Health IT Week site that invites individuals to share their health IT story with the world. Going beyond statistics and technology, the community wants to hear from those impacted directly by health IT. Head to the site or share your story on Twitter via #IHeartHIT.
And if you ever question why it is we do what we do, look no further for inspiration that has already been published. We look forward to seeing you around social. Let’s get ready to have share the #HealthIT love!
