The discussion focuses on the National Health IT Collaborative for the Underserved (NHIT), which was started 15 years ago to ensure legislation surrounding Health Information Technology is beneficial and inclusive for underserved demographics. Panelists include Louis Belanger, CEO of NHIT, and Dr. Patrick Carroll of HIMSS Health who discuss the ongoing importance of the organization. Panelist Dr. Susan Manielli speaks about the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health's work in driving better health outcomes, particularly for underserved communities. Dr. Sarah Lopez of Zocalo Health shares her personal experience with cancer to emphasize the importance of providing healthcare to underserved communities. Andy Bleaden from ECHAlliance discusses how diverse communities globally can learn from each other to improve health outcomes. They hope to use data more effectively, to continue leveraging tech companies in their initiatives, enact better strategies for regulation, encourage involvement of minority communities in health tech, and build sustainability and scalability into their programs.
