Top FedHealthIT Events to Attend in early 2017

As we kick off the New Year, included below are a few key events that you will want to consider putting on your calendar for January and February as a way to get a head start on 2017.

The Impact of Technology on Individual Health with CMS, HHS, DHA and VA

WHEN: Thursday, January 19, 2017
WHERE: Arlington, VA

With confirmed speakers that include the CMS Deputy Chief Medical Officer for Center for Clinical Standards and Quality, the Chief Medical Officer for ONC and the VHA Chief Officer, Office of Connected Care and the Chief Medical Officer, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, this mid-January meeting remains one of the top monthly events for both networking and content.

The HIMSS National Capital Area chapter continues to be the premier industry organization for Federal Health IT professionals, in part due to their ability to attract some of the top speakers and attendees from government and industry. 

Federal Health IT and the New Administration

WHEN: Multiple Dates in January
WHERE: Multiple Locations

Starting next week, four separate industry led working groups focused on CMS, DHA, VA and HHS will kick off with a focus on the changing Health IT landscape, in light of the new administration. This will be a great opportunity to ensure both you and your organization are up to speed in what promises to be a dynamic and rapidly changing environment as the new administration works to score some quick wins and outline an aggressive agenda.

Veterans Affairs T4NG Industry Happy Hour

WHEN: Wednesday, January 25, 2017 6:00 – 8:30 PM
WHERE: Clyde’s Ashburn, 42920 Broadlands Blvd, Broadlands, VA 20148

The T4NG Loudoun Networking Group continues to see its numbers increase every time both from T4NG primes, subs and companies trying to enter VA market. The ability to connect at one time in one location with many of the T4NG primes is an opportunity that any firm targeting VA, large or small, may want to consider. This is an informal event held monthly. Registration is not required.

HIMSS 2017 Conference & Exhibition – Where the Brightest Minds in Health and IT Meet

WHEN: February 19-23, 2017
WHERE: Orlando, Florida

For the Federal Health IT professional, HIMSS can be an overwhelming spectacle as the FedHIT market constitutes a small fraction of the sessions and exhibits, however there are always several key presenters and organizations in attendance and the conference does provide a great opportunity to meet with prospective customers and partners in a casual setting. 

Military Healthcare Summit

WHEN: February 27-March 1
WHERE: Washington, DC

This will be an early opportunity to focus on military healthcare under the new incoming Administration and following the FY2017 NDAA which transfers operational authority for the military treatment facilities to the Defense Health Agency by October 2018.
