Chair: Ritu Agarwal
Program Co-Chairs: Guodong (Gordon) Gao and Jeffrey S. McCullough

We are pleased to announce the call for submissions to the 8th Annual Conference on Health IT and Analytics (CHITA).

CHITA (pronounced “cheetah”) is an annual research summit and doctoral consortium that gathers prominent scholars in a multidisciplinary setting. Previously called the Workshop on Health IT & Economics (WHITE) for seven years, the conference has been rebranded to reflect 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.

This year’s CHITA will be held in Washington DC, center of health policy debates, on Friday and Saturday, November 3rd-4th, 2017 with a pre-conference doctoral consortium on November 2nd. The conference is hosted by the Center for Health Information and Decision Systems (CHIDS) at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland. CHIDS ( was established in 2005, and is the first academic research center focused on health information and decision systems in a leading business school. CHITA is produced in partnership with the University of Michigan School of Public Health.

Papers are solicited on a wide range of topics including, but not limited to: Health IT’s adoption and impact; Healthcare analytics and big data; Health information exchange; New IT-enabled organizational forms and delivery models; Market competition and health insurance exchange; mHealth and patient empowerment; and Quality transparency and public reporting. There is special interest this year in the following emerging topics: AI applications for healthcare, population health management, cybersecurity, behavior (both of providers and patients), and policy modeling.

Please submit a brief abstract (one page), an extended abstract of no more than 5 pages (11-pt font, one-inch margins on four sides, double-spaced) or a full manuscript to by Tuesday, August 15th, 2017. Submissions will be reviewed for novelty, rigor, and policy impact. Decisions will be sent to authors no later than Thursday, September 7th, 2017. The conference will include full presentations, research round tables, and a poster session. As in the past, CHITA will give awards for Best Paper, Best student-authored Paper, and Young Researcher. The latter two awards are given to papers with either a student or junior researcher as the lead author. To be considered, full papers should be submitted to by Friday, September 29, 2017.
