• AEHIT Fall Summit

    Spark discussion, shape your association – join us for the 2019 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 future proofing 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 three-day 2019 Fall Summit, open exclusively to AEHIT members.

    The 2019 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.

    Rana Foroohar

    Rana Foroohar, global business columnist at The Financial Times and global economic analyst at CNN, covers the intersection of business, economics, politics and foreign affairs. She frequently profiles movers and shakers in finance and business, including Warren Buffett, Bill Gross, Howard Shultz, Mary Barra and Carl Icahn. Her high-level yet accessible analysis has made her a sought-after commentator on influential programs such as CNNI and Face the Nation.

    Foroohar’s first book, Makers and Takers, was a finalist for the 2016 FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award. Her upcoming book, Don’t Be Evil: The Trouble with Big Tech, looks at how the largest tech companies wield power over the economy and our society, and how the monetization of our information has distorted the very foundation of democracy. It is scheduled for release in the fall of 2019.

    In this video, Foroohar talks about privacy, artificial intelligence and the digital economy. 

    Listen to this reading of a column she wrote for The Financial Times called “The Global Race for 5G Supremacy is Not Yet Won.”

    Stephanie Lahr on ambient clinical intelligence:


    Eric Topol, MD

    Eric Topol, MD, is one of the leading innovators in medicine today, specializing in the use of artificial intelligence, “deep” data and smart technology in the practice of individualized medicine. Also called precision medicine, individualized medicine tailors diagnosis, prevention and treatment to the full biological and social profile of the individual, rather than the “average” human of traditional medical science. Topol is a cardiologist, founder and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute, executive vice president of Scripps Research and professor of Molecular Medicine.

    He is one of the top 10 cited researchers in medicine and a Modern Healthcare poll voted him the most influential physician leader in the U.S. He is the author of two bestsellers on the future of healthcare, The Creative Destruction of Medicine and The Patient Will See You Now. His most recent book, Deep Medicine, was released this year.

    Topol is leading a National Health Service program in the UK to pioneer new treatments and technologies to transform healthcare. Listen to his thoughts on preparing the healthcare workforce for a digital future.

    Topol explains how AI can help to humanize healthcare in this Q&A with Time.

    In-Person Focus Group Sessions

    These sessions will be held during the Fall Summit program-at-large on Nov 4th and 5th. AEHIT Foundation Partners are looking forward to your valuable feedback on topics of interest as well as various initiatives and/or programs during these interactive sessions. 

    • Peer to peer conversations
    • Education has happened- attend more informed, more intentional sessions
    • Networking
    • Hearing innovative and new ideas from Foundation partners
    • AEHIT is built off of collaborative work between provider and Foundation- help us continue this tradition

    This is a chance to inform Vendor partners about your needs, help shape the future of the industry

    • Give back- make sure your voice is heard
    • Product eval/industry future

    My goal is to innovate care for patients. The AEHIT Focus Groups, either online or in person at AEHIT events, have elicited, new and innovative ways to enhance care. Not to mention the collaboration amongst my peers, learning what innovative things they are doing, has allowed me to think outside the box and make informed decisions. Personally, lifelong relationships are created, which have enhanced me personally. An asset you cannot measure the value of.

    – Jason Hawley, IT Manager, UCHealth
