Conference on Health IT and Analytics (CHITA)

Conference on Health IT and Analytics (CHITA)


OCTOBER 8-10, 2020
9 a.m.–Noon each day

After much deliberation about concerns related to COVID-19, the conference chairs have decided to make CHITA 2020 a virtual event. While we are disappointed that we will not be together in-person with our community this year, we are excited to host CHITA 2020 as an online experience.


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 tenth 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.

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