NHIT is a 501(c)3 non-profit with a mission to engage underserved populations in the development and use of health information technology (HIT) as a means to support and sustain health equity and economic viability based on NHIT’s five pillars: Workforce, Innovation, Policy, Research, and Community.
This year’s NHIT's Health Equity Legislative Summit seeks: 1) to update participants on current challenges to health equity and policy strategies that support community and digital health solutions that respond to the needs of the underserved; 2) to provide an update on new funding opportunities for health equity and community health programs; examine the development of healthcare demonstration projects and community health models; and 3) to foster a dialogue on best practices for listening to and learning from underserved communities and incorporating their feedback into the design of digital health products. In addition, we plan to share with attendees the findings of our 2022 National listening tour which has already taken us to Florida, Louisiana, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands, where we have heard directly from academics, healthcare professionals, community leaders, and entrepreneurs about the challenges that our country continues to deal with on telehealth and the innovative solutions that they developed.
