The Conference on Health IT and Analytics (CHITA), is an annual health information technology (IT) and analytics summit of prominent scholars gathered to build a multidisciplinary health IT and analytics research community. Its goal is to deepen our understanding of health IT and analytics design, implementation and use and the 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.
