If your organization will already be hosting an event this fall, plan to hold it sometime during NHITWeek, October 8-12, 2018. That way you can celebrate NHIT Week as part of the festivities, and have your event listed on the online calendar.
During your event, carve out five minutes to highlight your organization’s participation in NHIT Week. If possible, have an organization leader (CEO, CIO) discuss the benefits of health information and technology, and how your organization is making a difference.
When promoting your event through newsletters, press releases, emails, social media, face-to-face communications, etc., be sure to add a line about your organization’s participation in NHIT Week. Here is an example:
"[Organization Name] is excited that [Event Name] coincides with U.S. National Health IT (NHIT) Week this October. We are proud to be one of 500+ Partners demonstrating the benefits that digital health technologies and workflows can bring to Americans, clinicians, and the U.S. health system during this important week."
Include NHIT Week branding in your event where possible, either with a podium sign, backdrop, poster, or banner.
Fill out the Event Form, to have your event promoted with NHIT Week activity listing.
