This will be the third session, held on Friday, January 8, 2021.

Conference sessions will specifically examine how human relationships account for software and device design and implementation, ethical stewardship of shared data, and the current best practices for incorporating health information technologies into clinical practice, all while maintaining patient-centered care.
