Conference on Health IT and Analytics

(Sponsored in part by AIM-AHEAD)


The Conference on Health IT and Analytics (CHITA) is an annual health information technology (IT) and analytics summit.

At this conference, prominent scholars gather to build a multidisciplinary health IT and analytics research community. Its goal is to deepen our understanding of health IT and analytics design, implementation, and use, and the resultant impact, and to stimulate new ideas with both policy and business implications. This forum provides a great venue to facilitate interaction and collaboration among academia, government, and industry.

Despite information technology's potential to transform health care delivery, significant challenges remain regarding design, implementation, utilization, and evaluation. Researchers are actively exploring these issues in fields as diverse as:
