Today marks the start of National Health IT Week, Sept. 15-19, with events and activities in Washington, D.C. and around the country designed to bring attention to the value of health information technology.

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT will kick off the week with its annual Consumer Health IT Summit, a day-long event to highlight public and private sector efforts to “advance patient engagement by empowering people with their digital health data and technology," according to ONC. This is the ninth year that National Health IT Week has been held as “an opportunity for the health IT community to come together under one umbrella to raise awareness of the cost savings and improved healthcare delivery benefits of health IT.”
