The purpose of the Summit is to provide participants with the latest information, insight, tools, and resources on transforming health care through the use of health information technology. The morning plenary sessions set the stage, providing national perspectives and Minnesota examples for connecting and optimizing the use of electronic health records (EHRs) and other health information technology to improve the health of patients and communities. The breakout sessions highlight topics with practical information from those at the local level achieving success at the various stages of Minnesota’s HIT Implementation Plan. A pre-summit workshop, exhibits offering a range of innovative products and services, and poster sessions sharing current research and applications are additional highlights.
