PA HIT Day is an opportunity for HIMSS members in Pennsyvania to meet state legislators who help to create, advocate, and advance Healthcare IT(HIT) policies within the Commonwealth. The 2019 PA HIT Day will focus on telehealth, interoperable health records for students, and Healthcare IT workforce initiatives.

DVHIMSS members are encouraged to attend events related to PA HIT Day as these events provide great insights into what YOUR elected officials are doing to support HIT.

The three PA HIMSS chapters will be recognizing selected legislative leaders at an awards ceremony on Monday, April 29, 2019 in Harrisburg, PA as part of our HIT advocacy efforts.  A reception will follow the awards ceremony.
