Top 50 Health IT Conferences to Attend in 2020, Part 2

Dave Levin, MD

Find Part 1 of our Top Health It Conferences list, here.

As global technology continues to evolve, so does the healthcare industry’s appetite for heightened connectivity and interoperability, which empower healthcare organizations to streamline patient care delivery and provide more efficient, better-quality care. According to data compiled by Health IT Dashboard, 96 percent of all non-federal acute care hospitals possessed certified health IT in 2017. But widespread health IT adoption aside, facilities must not rest on their initial investments to see them through the next decade – or potentially even the next few years. In order to compete in this ever-evolving landscape, the healthcare industry must be willing to collaborate and take an active role in its IT implementation.

To support this mission, we’ve compiled a list of the 50 best health IT conferences to attend in 2020. These events are designed to connect healthcare professionals working in a variety of unique disciplines, touching on hot-button topics for today’s healthcare organizations, from connectivity to interoperability, digital health apps, cybersecurity, the rise of blockchain (and its potential to impact the healthcare industry), Artificial Intelligence, and other health IT trends and innovations.
