On Thursday, April 30, Markle Foundation (New York) is hosting Getting Health IT Right Under ARRA, a forum that it says will bring together health IT experts and government decision-makers to discuss how to best spend the funds allocated for the industry in the stimulus package.

The event will be held from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the Newseum, Room 802, located at 555 Pennsylvania Ave. NW in Washington. It will feature a public-private coalition of IT and healthcare stakeholders regarding “meaningful use,” the Foundation says.

Speakers will include:

· David Blumenthal, National Coordinator for Health IT, Department of Health and Human Services

· Mark McClellan, Director of the Engelberg Center at the Brookings Institution

· Todd Park, Senior Fellow for Health IT at the Center for American Progress

· Zoё Baird, President of the Markle Foundation

· Carol Diamond, Managing Director of the Markle Foundation
