About Mr. Lieber's Lecture, "Paper to Digital: How Federal Policy Transformed Health IT in America"...

Between 1999 and 2015, the management of health information dramatically shifted—from a paper-based environment to one that is digital. During that period, a number of federal policy actions drove the transformation. This lecture will explore the relationship between governmental policy and evolution of health IT.
