COCIT Get Involved

COCIT is the voice of children and child health providers when it comes to health information technology! In the national initiatives to design electronic health record (EHR) systems and other technology, COCIT provides this voice for pediatrics and we need yours! The bigger COCIT is, the louder our voice is and the more creditable our voice becomes.
