2012 WHITE

The Third Annual Workshop on Health IT and Economics

October 5-6, 2012, Washington, DC

WHITE is a health information technology (IT) summit that gathers prominent scholars in a multidisciplinary setting. Despite IT’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, and economics. Each field brings a unique perspective and insights; collectively, these disciplinary approaches are complementary.

The mission of WHITE is to build the foundation for a multidisciplinary health IT and economics research community, and to stimulate new ideas with both policy and business implications. Synergies generated from integration across individual disciplines will deepen our understanding of health IT design and its resultant impact. Finally, this forum provides a great venue to facilitate interaction and collaboration between academia, government, and industry.
