Transforming Health Care Through Technology Summit

  • Sheraton Burlington Hotel & Conference Center 870 Williston Road Burlington, Vermont (map)

Health care in Vermont— and nationally—is transforming from the traditional fee-for-service model, to a system that can improve the patient experience of care, improve the health of populations and impact health care costs. Information technology is the foundation for the health care reform efforts that will ensure health information is securely and readily available when people need it. See the schedule.
