- Held since 2011, DSI’s Health IT Summits are a unique forum that allows for personnel from DoD, VA, Federal and State agencies to convene in one location along with leaders from Industry and Academia that support them. Our “Town Hall” format is designed to encourage challenging discussion and dialogue amongst all in attendance.
- By keeping our forum off-the record and non-attribution, we allow for a level of stream of consciousness and shared ideas and thoughts to flow freely. Our agendas cover the most current priorities for our Military and Government health IT communities, and strive to achieve actionable takeaways for all in attendance.
- We limit our attendance size to around 250 persons in order to allow everyone a chance to actively participate and to mix and mingle with each other easily over the two days we are together. However, due to our choice to limit seating, every iteration does sell out in advance, so we encourage you to explore our site more, give us a call if you have any questions, and we hope to welcome you in October!
- The DoD/VA & Gov HIT Summit is open and complimentary to all DoD and Federal employees. This Summit is not officially sanctioned or endorsed by the Department of VA or DoD
- DSI’s Summit will provide a forum for each department to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry. increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their departments.
