The Texas Health Informatics Alliance is pleased to announce the First Annual Texas Health Informatics Alliance Conference (THIAC) that will bring together the Health Informatics community in Texas. This live, virtual conference will provide an opportunity to share, collaborate, and showcase the amazing work in Health Informatics and will feature presentations and keynote speakers from our state. The theme for the First Annual Texas Health Informatics Alliance Conference will be “All In: Informatics Lessons from the Pandemic to Reimagine Health Care” and will include in-depth lectures, plenary sessions, and interactive Q&A sessions meant to raise awareness of what data is available to be extracted and used, and then teach how to manipulate, store, and analyze these complex data sets. Learners will be exposed to examples of how real-life data can be analyzed and interpreted and they will see examples of large scale datasets being leveraged for gaining population health knowledge. Pandemic Datasets will be pulled from a combination of sources to include the Texas Health Care Information Collection (THCIC) Database and the Optum Database that is utilized within the University of Texas System (UT Southwestern, UT Houston, UT Arlington). While the majority of the data examples will be related to the COVID-19 pandemic, additional data examples will be presented addressing other outbreaks (e.g., Zika, MERS, SARS, TB, West Nile, etc.).

Target Audience

This program is specifically designed for Primary Care providers, Emergency physicians, Cardiologists, Radiologists, NPs/PAs, RNs, and other healthcare professionals that are interested in how to more effectively utilize and leverage data in a clinical care setting.
