Several of your DFW Area colleagues were able to attend Texas HIT Day at the Capitol yesterday. We would all agree it was a great success. We had the chance to meet with over 50 Senators and Representatives (and/or their office staff) to discuss the need for support for Telehealth, Interoperability, and the Opioid Crisis (specifically PDMP).
We know we were heard by many of our legislators as we had great attendance at the afternoon forum where national and state updates were provided, and a panel spoke to the opioid crisis. We all left much more informed and invigorated to fight for Health IT and had a great time meeting other Health IT professionals from the Texas area.
If you missed it, be sure to join us in 2 years for the next session!!
