NIHB 2021 National Tribal Health IT Summit

December 14, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST

The Rise of Technology to Revolutionize Indian Country

Presented by Leidos, the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) is excited to announce the rescheduled National Tribal Health Information Technology (IT) Summit. The Summit will be held Tuesday, December 14, 2021, 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM ET and is free of charge.

Health IT Modernization is of critical importance to Indian Country. As the Indian Health Service (IHS) progresses further with its Health IT Modernization Project, it is critical that we take this time to ensure that Tribal needs are guiding every step of the project moving forward. For this reason, NIHB is hosting this Summit to ensure that all Tribes have an opportunity to share their Health IT concerns, needs, and priorities. This Summit will explore the wants of Tribes and what is required to modernize Health IT in Indian Country.
