2016 WHITE

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.

This forum provides a great venue to facilitate interaction and collaboration among academia, government, and industry. Now in its seventh year, each year WHITE draws over 100 scholars and thought leaders from more than 40 institutions.

Hosted by the Center for Health Information & Decision Systems (CHIDS), support for WHITE is provided by the Robert H. Smith School of Business, The University of Michigan School of Public Health, and the United States Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

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