Terps do health care, too!

Accelerating Information Technology Enabled Healthcare Transformation in Maryland and the Nation

(I am posting this at the request of Liz Barron at the Univerity of Maryland.)

When: Friday, October 7, 2011, 8:30am - 5:30pm
Where: Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park

Engage with faculty from across the University of Maryland, College Park and Baltimore campuses, as they provide briefings on their latest health IT research; hear from state leaders as they provide insights on health reform in Maryland and implications for the state’s health IT strategic roadmap; join with industry, federal and university executives as they share perspectives on driving fruitful collaboration and tapping the rich resources available through the university; and much more!  Joshua Sharfstein, Maryland's secretary of health and mental hygiene, will deliver the keynote address.  The University of Maryland Fall Health IT Summit is hosted by the University of Maryland Center of Excellence in Health IT Research.

The Summit's goal is to stimulate research and collaboration between the University of Maryland and potential partners in government, industry, clinical organizations and advocacy groups.  It is a forum for stakeholders across the health ecosystem to discuss current health information technology strategy, policy and technology issues that Maryland and the nation is facing. The event also showcases the multi-disciplinary resources of the university, through its College Park and Baltimore campuses, that are being leveraged to accelerate health transformation. The event also provides a forum for engaging students and furthering intra-campus collaboration and research opportunities.

The event is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP by sending an email including your name, organization and title to Faye Baker at
