A two-day conference in May will provide practical
how-to guidance-including case studies-on the technical,
legal, financial and organizational change aspects of
implementing electronic health information technology

across the nation.

Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC, will showcase emerging
technology and methods in HIT and HIE implementation,
presented by some of the country's most innovative organizations,
consultants, public health experts, non-profit associations,
health plans, and employers.
"For the national HIT agenda to succeed, it must
be rooted in local communities. That's why we encourage
local professionals to bring a team of people to the
CCBH meeting for an opportunity to learn and interact
with experts together," said David Schulke, Executive
Vice President of AHQA, one of the primary co-sponsors
of the CCBH conference.
"The increase in the number of states, regions
and communities that are bringing together multiple
and diverse stakeholders to explore common ground on
utilizing health information technology and health information
exchange to address local healthcare challenges is enormous",
said Janet Marchibroda, Chief Executive Officer of the
eHealth Initiative, another primary co-sponsor of the
program, "the Connecting Communities for Better
Health Learning Forum is bringing those stakeholders
together, to develop common solutions that work for
everyone-it is the first of its kind."
The format of the meeting will be highly interactive,
giving participants an opportunity to work with directly
with both technical experts and national thought leaders

One major track of the conference will feature breakout
sessions by region and state, bringing together clinicians,
