This is the time of year when many BD leaders build out their budgets for next year. Included here is a list of Fed Health IT events to plan for in 2016.

HIMSS-NCA Monthly Educational Programs

8 events total in 2016 with 4 upcoming;

  • February 18, 2016 – Proposed Topic – Personal Health and Precision Medicine
  • March 17, 2016 – Proposed Topic – Data Mapping or the Data Journey
  • April 21, 2016 – Proposed Topic – Interoperability/HIE or TeleHealth
  • May 19, 2016 – Proposed Topic – DHMSM and EHR Solutions

Irrespective of the lineup, the National Capital Area chapter for HIMSS regularly draws in Federal Health IT leaders from across industry and government and the networking alone makes this worth the trip. 


HIMSS 2016 Conference & Exhibition – Transforming Health through IT

DATE: February 29-March 4, 2016                                       

LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada

HIMSS ultimately is what you make of it. It is an overwhelming spectacle, but one that can afford you the opportunity to meet with prospective customers in a casual setting. In this case, sitting alongside a prospect playing Blackjack or Texas Hold’em does forge a different bond then queueing up in the Speaker’s line at a conference or battling the field at a networking event. 


Federal Health IT Innovation Awards

DATE: Late Spring 2016

LOCATION: Washington, DC

The 2nd Annual Federal Health IT Innovation Awards will be held this Spring. This event recognizes the most innovative programs and initiatives happening in the Federal Health IT (FHIT) space. Winners in Mobile/IoT, Interoperability, Big Data, Cloud, and Digital Engagement will be selected by a panel that includes leaders from government, industry, and the startup community.


Defense Strategies’ Institute 10th DoD/VA EHR and HIT Summit

DATE: May 3-4, 2016, and mid-October                                           

LOCATION: Alexandria, VA

DSI continues to draw in many leading speakers as they host and organize one of the top Federal Health IT events around town. To get a glimpse of the proceedings of this summit held twice a year, view the last Post-Summit report which highlights the primary findings and solutions identified as part of this event that included more than a dozen leaders from across VA, DoD, and the larger Federal Health IT community.


VA Healthcare 2016

DATE: Mid-May                                                                                  

LOCATION: Washington, DC

The VA Healthcare 2015 was well received last year because IDGA did an excellent job of partnering with VA to deliver a set of speakers that you might not normally gain access to without expensive and time consuming trips to places such as Idaho, Oklahoma and VA facilities across the US.
