The meeting is just one milestone towards realizing a shared vision to create a nationwide roadmap that will help make sure that stakeholders can connect care, improve health, and develop the health IT system that can be part of the larger learning health system. The details about the meeting will be available on

Putting the Person at the Center

Beginning at 9 am EDT Thursday, October 16, we and the Administration for Community Living are hosting a town-hall style workshop called Putting the Person at the Center: Integrating Plans for Long-Term Services and Supports and Health Care Delivery through Health Information Technology. We are looking for your ideas about how to enable a person-centered approach for planning and delivering both long-term services and supports and health delivery information. We welcome comments on how to improve communications and collaboration across community based organizations and health care partners through health IT. The in-person session is full, but you can still attend online.Learn more if you are interested.
