National Health IT Week Fast Approaching

National Health IT Week, October 2–6, 2017, is quickly approaching! How are you going to participate? Here are a few ways you can help demonstrate the value of health IT during this nationwide awareness week:
Share your #IHeartHIT story. Personal stories go beyond statistics and demonstrate the true value of health IT. How has health IT affected your or a loved one’s health journey? 

Sign up as a Partner. Has your organization signed up as a National Health IT Week Partner yet? If not, there’s still time to sign up here.

Attend a local or virtual event. Check out the National Health IT Week calendar for events happening in your area. And mark your calendar for the HIMSS webinar “Health IT Infrastructure: Supporting 21st-Century Healthcare” on Tuesday, October 3 at 1:00 pm CT.
Celebrate the HIMSS Health IT Leadership Awards. Join HIMSS and other dedicated thought leaders and policy professionals on Capitol Hill as we acknowledge the importance of working together to advance health through the use of IT. Space is limited, so please RSVP by Monday, September 25.
Post to social media. Share why National Health IT Week is important to you and how you’re supporting it with your friends and followers.
