About CHITA

Despite information technology'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
  • Health administration
  • Business
  • Economics

Each field brings a unique perspective and insights.

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.
