Formal remarks begin at 5:30pm. This year’s event will focus on how access to the right information at the right time can help provide access to care. We will explore a number of policy-related topics including those related to telehealth, virtual care, the future of digital health in Maryland, coordinated care, and the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.

You will have the opportunity to meet and network with invited legislators from the Maryland House of Delegates and Senate during our evening event, which will include hors d'oeuvre and cocktails. Your legislators are very interested in hearing your suggestions to further improve our State's healthcare. This years' 90-day legislative session is set to have a fast start on Jan. 9th, with numerous bills already being drafted for introduction; many that will impact healthcare. Join us in being a resource to our legislators by helping to further educate and provide resourceful information related to healthcare IT.
