Promote NHIT Week in Your Existing Communications

There are many quick and easy ways you can promote NHIT Week in all your communications and outreach efforts. Here are a few easy to implement suggestions:

· Add NHIT Week to your email signature. You send more emails than you probably realize. By noting your organization’s involvement in NHIT Week, you are promoting the Week, as well as your organization’s commitment to health IT. The addition to your email signature could be something as simple as:

Celebrating National Health IT Week, September 26-30, 2016.

[Incorporate the NHIT Week logo and/or include a link to www.healthitweek.org.]

·Use existing internal communications. Promote NHIT Week internally by posting NHIT Week posters on bulletin boards, and placing a note about NHIT Week in your organization’s internal calendars, newsletter or email alerts. This is an easy way for you to notify others of your organization’s involvement in NHIT Week. The note can be something such as:

[Your organization] is celebrating National Health IT Week, September 26-30, 2016.

[You may want to include the NHIT Week logo and/or include a link to www.healthitweek.org.]

· Include information on print communications. When sending out a news release, marketing letter or other print communications to external audiences, you can add the line:

Celebrating National Health IT Week, September 26-30, 2016.

[Incorporate the NHIT Week logo and/or include a link to www.healthitweek.org.]

 

These are simple ways that pack a big impact to let your network and colleagues know that your organization is among those celebrating NHIT Week.
