[Information to know going into the event!]
What is HIT?
HIT is the acronym for Health Information Technology and is a growing area in the medical industry. With more data being accumulated with the current systems in place in our Healthcare system, we also need more applications to process this information and data to provide meaningful results.

What is Telehealth?
Telehealth involves the distribution of health-related services and information via electronic information and telecommunication technologies. It allows long distance patient/clinician contact and care, advice, reminders, education, intervention, monitoring and remote admissions.
