September 15th starts off the 9th annual observance of National Health Information Technology Week.

This week is intended to help raise awareness of the importance of technology in the health care field, and the ways in which it can improve patient care. According to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT:

National Health IT Week celebrates the efforts that have been made through the use of Health IT —and are being made—in the transformation of how care is delivered, health information shared, quality measured, reimbursements dispersed, and patients engaged in their own health and health care.

Each day this week has a specific focus or theme chosen by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT:
