National Health IT Week (NHIT Week), October 8-12, is a nationwide awareness week focused on catalyzing actionable change within the U.S. health system through the application of information and technology.

Virtually, in Washington DC and beyond, NHIT Week stakeholders collaborate towards actionable outcomes which demonstrate the power information and technology has to transform health in the U.S., and its wide-reaching global impact.

NHIT Week is approaching quickly, and HIMSS Chapters are gearing up to celebrate the nationwide awareness week through hosting individual events, showcasing their advocacy and amplifying conversations around the value of health IT.
