    About CHITA:

    CHITA is an annual research summit and doctoral consortium that gathers prominent scholars in a multidisciplinary setting. CHITA focuses on the increasing role, importance and impact of analytics and health information technology in improving individual and population health, and health system quality and performance. Each year, the conference attracts over 100 scholars and thought leaders from more than 40 institutions. CHITA provides a forum for researchers to disseminate their work and network within a growing and vibrant community. This conference fosters collaboration between academia, government and industry to bridge research, policy, and practice. 

    Papers are solicited on a wide range of topics including, but not limited to: health IT's adoption and impact; artificial Intelligence (AI) for healthcare, healthcare analytics and big data; health information exchange and interoperability; new IT enabled organizational forms and delivery models; mHealth and patient empowerment; and quality transparency and public reporting. 

    There is special interest this year in the following topics: fair and responsible artificial intelligence for healthcare, large language models (LLMs) and healthcare, human capital in medicine, technology and health analytics, and healthcare disparities. Papers that include a focus on themes of fairness in AI for AHRQ priority populations (e.g., those with multiple chronic conditions, racial/ethnic minorities) will receive special consideration. A particular emphasis for this year's conference is on advancing knowledge about fair and responsible artificial intelligence for health.
