This Summit is co-located with the HIE SUMMIT, an overview of which follows: A variety of new federal programs directed to states, such as those related to health information exchange capacity, technical assistance to support health IT adoption for "meaningful use" and pilot projects devoted to new models for collaboration in care delivery, including care coordination, have recently been launched. These developments require that state and local leaders - and the key leaders across every sector of healthcare involved in these activities - react quickly to drive for success in this new and challenging terrain, with high visibility and significant investment at stake.
