Event Highlights

The Conference on Health IT and Analytics (previously known as the Workshop on Health IT & Economics) is an annual health IT and analytics research summit, including a doctoral consortium that each year gathers prominent scholars from more than 40 research institutes, and leading policy and practitioner attendees in a vibrant setting to discuss opportunities and challenges in the design, implementation and management of health information technology and analytics. Its goal is to deepen our understanding of strategy, policy and systems fostering health IT and analytics effective use and to stimulate new ideas with both policy and business implications.

This forum provides a productive venue to facilitate interaction and collaboration among academia, government, and industry. Now in its ninth year, each year CHITA draws over 100 participants.

Convened by the Center for Health Information & Decision Systems (CHIDS), support for CHITA is provided by the Robert H. Smith School of Business, the University of Michigan School of Public Health, and the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and our Health Leader sponsor, United Solutions.

We hope that you will join us for this engaging, stimulating and fun event!
