Despite information technology’s potential to transform healthcare delivery, significant challenges remain regarding design, implementation, utilization, and evaluation. These issues are being actively explored in fields as diverse as:

  • Medical informatics
  • Computer science
  • Public health
  • Business
  • Economics

Each field brings a unique perspective and insights.

The Workshop on Health IT and Economics (WHITE), is an annual health information technology (IT) summit of prominent scholars gathered to build a multidisciplinary health IT and economics research community. Its goal is to deepen our understanding of health IT design and its resultant impact and to stimulate new ideas with both policy and business implications. Finally, this forum provides a great venue to facilitate interaction and collaboration among academia, government, and industry.
