The Institute hosts the Capitol Hill “Steering Committee on Telehealth and Healthcare Informatics.” Since 1993, the Steering Committee has offered educational sessions, technology demonstrations and field visits. Building on in-depth program content of more than 180 past programs, the agenda continues to focus on working with a wide variety of groups (academia, government, and the private sector) to help develop legislative priorities and awareness related to telehealth, e-Health and health care informatics. The programs are publically available and widely attended, and are especially geared toward Congressional health and technology staffers to help keep them informed on fast evolving policy issues related to healthcare and health information technology. A complimentary lunch is available at all scheduled sessions.
