Nine Israeli health care information technology firms visited Atlanta April 11-12 to meet with major U.S. counterparts and learn about the country’s business climate.

They participated in the second U.S.-Israel Health IT Business Exchange hosted by the American Israel Chamber of Commerce, Southeast Region.

The event included a roundtable featuring chief information officers from local hospitals. They said that even companies with the most innovative of solutions in theory must work closely with CIOs to put them into practice, according to a news release.

On April 12, the Israeli firms held one-on-one meetings with companies such as McKesson, AT&T, IBM, Sprint, Healthport and others.
