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

  • AEHIA Fall Summit

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

    Healthcare applications leaders are faced with keeping up-to-date with the latest and greatest in applications management, while also dealing with the day-to-day hustle and bustle of healthcare. It is critical that you deliver excellent customer service while dealing with everything from internal software miscues to keeping up with continual upgrades. In addition, you must keep up with ever-changing healthcare regulations such as Meaningful Use and MACRA. As an applications leader, you must remain adaptable to new software and systems that can ease the burden on your care providers, while ensuring these solutions fit into your overall organization strategy.

    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, AEHIA is pleased to announce our 2018 Fall Summit, open exclusively to AEHIA members.

    The 2018 AEHIA Fall Summit will be held October 31 – November 2 in San Diego, and will feature application-centric speakers and presentations that will inform you and your team of the newest software, best practices, and opportunities in healthcare applications. You will also have the opportunity to network with other applications leaders and share your experiences.
