September 24, 2019 – PITTSBURGH, Pa. – A2U, a leading IT solutions provider, announced today that it is a proud partner of U.S. National Health IT Week (NHIT Week) September 23-27. NHIT Week is a nationwide action week focused on supporting healthy communities across the U.S. through the application of information and technology.

“There is no better time for us to come together and take action to transform health through innovative IT,” said Dan Dillman, CEO, A2U. “We are behind the IT at many health systems across the country and knowing that we play a part in deploying more precise and efficient solutions to improve patient care is extremely rewarding.”

As payment structures evolve, patients demand more from their providers and the volume of available data continues to increase at a staggering rate – IT is driving transformation across the board in healthcare.

“In Pittsburgh, specifically, there is a quiet revolution going on in the heart of our city and that progress is putting technology in the spotlight. From regional research and innovation and 3D mammography to infant head trauma screening and touch wellness –  we’re seeing breakthrough progress right here in our backyard and IT has driven many of those breakthroughs,” said Cliff Miller, CTO, A2U.

According to A2U, comprehensive healthcare reform is not possible without system-wide adoption of health IT.

“IT is at nearly every touchpoint in the healthcare system. IT improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, decreases medical errors and strengthens the interaction between patients and healthcare providers,” said Dillman.

Initiated in 2006 by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), NHIT Week has emerged as a landmark occasion for using health IT as part of the overall solution to improve America’s healthcare as a bipartisan, federally led, market driven initiative.

The Week consists of events across the country, including market suppliers, provider organizations, payers, pharmaceutical/biotech companies, government agencies, industry/professional associations, research foundations and consumer protection groups— all working together to elevate national attention to the advantages of advancing health IT.

A2U executives say this week, they’re focused on celebrating the HIT industry’s accomplishments by reflecting on that progress, while continuing to highlight the opportunities to improve the health system through IT and provide better care.
