AEGIS will actively participate in the upcoming 2014 Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) Annual Meeting on January 23-24 in Washington, DC. This meeting occurs on the heels of Dr. Karen DeSalvo, MD starting her role as the new National Coordinator. AEGIS staff will engage in the wide-range of training sessions, covering EHR certification, data exchange and interoperability, Stage 2 preparation and other topics. AEGIS will join grantees, stakeholders, and other members of the public to discuss the achievements, challenges and impacts of wide-spread adoption of health information technology for improving care.

A variety of speakers and panelists will join the two-day meeting to discuss improving care, population health, and reducing health care costs through the use of health IT in addition to spurring innovation for health IT transformation. We particularly look forward to the presentation on Connecting the Dots: Demonstrating Progress Toward Interoperability.
