#NHITWeek and #BlueButton Consumer #Health IT Summit

I will be blogging today from the Consumer Health IT Summit.

Patient Engagement and BlueButton Campaign Kickoff

Karen DeSalvo kicks off National Health IT Week. (#NHITWeek). “The patient/consumer is the most important person in the Health System”

Interoperability is a top priority. A means to an end.

1 in 3 experience gaps in health information.
Only 3 in 10 people have been given access to health information online.

44% of people that access health information want to share it.

Consumers are demanding that their own information is included in their health information.

BlueButton Campaign kicks off today.

Karen DeSalvo tells her personal story that led to the #Walking Gallery Jacket she was wearing today. A jacket painted by the amazing Regina Holliday.

The digitization of Health care and health information can democratize in a way that has never been possible before.
