AEHIA’s Second Annual Fall Summit

By Zach Donisch, Membership Director, AEHIS, AEHIT, AEHIA

AEHIA is pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2018 Fall Summit, taking place from Oct. 31 – Nov. 2 in San Diego at the OMNI Hotel. This three-day conference coincides with CHIME’s CIO Fall Forum, and for the first time AEHIA and CHIME members will have the opportunity to rub shoulders at after-hours events, the “Party in the Park” Thursday concert, and Friday’s Most Wired awards ceremony.

Register now to take advantage of members-only early bird pricing!


Kicking off the conference on Wednesday, Oct. 31, attendees will enjoy an opening keynote and group activity, with a reception to follow. Over dinner, connect and network with your peers in healthcare applications leadership. At last year’s Fall Summit, AEHIA attendees partnered with AEHIS and AEHIT members for an access node scavenger hunt. Attendees grouped together and fanned out across the conference center, looking for rogue access points that contained words that, when combined, formed a phrase. Expect an engaging and collaborative event partnered with our sister associations.

Thursday is a day full of education from members, experts and vendor partners. AEHIA’s morning content will be themed around the Future of Healthcare. You’ll enjoy topics such as leadership strategies during mergers and acquisitions, staffing for the future, application rationalizations and more. Following lunch, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon will each present their vision on driving innovation and change in healthcare. The day’s education will conclude with a moderated panel discussion with all three firms. As the evening ends, AEHIA members are invited to join CHIME, AEHIS and AEHIT members for a “Party in the Park” concert, with drinks, dinner and a band playing timeless classics.

On Friday morning, the conference concludes with a joint breakfast for all attendees of the Fall Forum and Fall Summits at the nearby Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina Hotel. AEHIA members are encouraged to attend the Most Wired awards ceremony and the closing keynote following breakfast, where they’ll enjoy a closing ceremony designed for all CHIME associations.

The AEHIA Fall Summit Planning Committee continues to work hard planning a robust and exciting agenda for members. AEHIA will provide additional information on specific speakers as it becomes available over the new few months; stay tuned for more announcements regarding our 2018 Fall Forum.
