From electronic health records to telemedicine to the latest consumer gadgets, health information technology is here – and more is on the way.
Health IT holds promises to give individuals more control over their own health, help physicians make more informed care decisions and improve the overall health of populations. And it holds promises for local stories - covering business, policy, public health, research and more.
AHCJ’s Journalism Workshop on Health Information Technology will give journalists a look at the roles of government, the tech industry, health care providers and – last but not least – consumers.
Leave the workshop with key resources to look past the big jargon terms – “informatics,” “big data,” and “meaningful use” – to the stories that will make differences to your audiences, impacting local patients, members of the health workforce and commerce.
