We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 3/17 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Erica Johansen with Splash Media (@thegr8chalupa and @SplashMedia). We’ll be discussing the topic “How Do We Include Every Generation in our HIT?”

Commentary on generational nuances have made their way into previous #HITsm chats and those comments usually sparked quite a discussion. So, we couldn’t think of a better way to give the people what they want!

This week, our chat will spark conversations on how generational perspectives are influencing healthcare technology, and additionally, how can we (as health IT leaders) can strive to incorporate and include diverse generational needs into the industry roadmap.
