The topic for the event is “Health IT, Adoption/Trends & the Latino Physician.” It will be an in depth discussion on Health IT and the Latino Community. Best practice on implementation, broadband adoption, mobile health and telemedicine and how leveraging HIT will eliminate health disparities in the Latino Community. Below you will find the agenda along with the workshop and/or section we are requesting your participation.  #LatinoHIT

The National Latino Alliance for Health Information Technology (LATINO HIT INITIATIVE) is focused on driving access to Health IT for small physician practices throughout the Latino community. The LATINO HIT INITIATIVE is able to leverage LISTA’s network of national leadership, program resources and high quality, culturally appropriate services in order to achieve this goal. Through careful implementation of HIT, we can avoid the expenses of secondary and tertiary care that raises the cost, while lowering the quality of healthcare in our community and other under-served communities.
