The Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Applications (AEHIA) was launched in 2014 in order to provide an education and networking platform to healthcare’s senior IT applications leaders.

AEHIA was formed under the auspices of CHIME, the premier professional membership organization for chief information officers (CIOs) and other senior healthcare IT leaders. CHIME leadership heeded a message of concern from members that there was a distinct lack of education and resources geared towards healthcare applications executives; AEHIA was designed to address that unmet need in the industry.
