AEHIT Fall Summit | October 31- November 2, 2018 | San Diego, CA

  • AEHIT Fall Summit

    Spark discussion, shape your association – join us for the 2018 AEHIT Fall Summit!

    Healthcare technology leaders are challenged daily with increasing demands on IT infrastructure, a growing need for highly trained staff alongside tightening budgets, and forward looking scrutiny into the viability and futureproofing of aging hardware. As hospital systems and medical device technology stretch the capabilities of hospital IT departments, tech leaders and executives must rise to meet these demands with a combination of education and commitment to best practices.

    Despite these daunting demands and complex solutions, you have a valuable resource at your fingertips. That resource is, of course, your colleagues! To learn from others in the industry, AEHIT is pleased to announce our 2018 Fall Summit, open exclusively to AEHIT members.

    The 2018 AEHIT Fall Summit will feature technology speakers and presentations that will enable you and your team to keep your organizations in line with best practices and lead your teams in the transformation of healthcare IT.
