What is AEHIT?

The Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Technology (AEHIT) was launched in 2014 in order to provide an education and networking platform to healthcare’s senior IT technology leaders. AEHIT 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 technology executives; AEHIT was designed to address that unmet need in the industry.

Why should I join AEHIT?

AEHIT is the only professional organization focused on supporting the healthcare industry’s technology executive community.  AEHIT is focused on advancing the role of the CTO through education, collaboration, and advocacy in support of the application of technology to improve healthcare safety and efficiency. We know what your challenges are and we’re here to help you with them. Healthcare organizations are increasingly relying on CTOs like yourself to manage an increasingly complex technology environment; making education and collaboration essential components to fostering knowledge, solutions and best-practice sharing. Your membership in AEHIT can help you save valuable time, get up to speed on hot industry topics, and refine your leadership skills.

I don’t hold the title of CTO. Can I still join?

AEHIT membership is open to CTOs and senior technology leaders at a healthcare provider or payer organization. To qualify you must be the highest ranking technology executive or have oversight and direct responsibility over the technology in your organization.  To facilitate collaboration and the development of stronger healthcare IT leaders, AEHIT members are encouraged to refer other healthcare technology executives as well.

Is AEHIT membership an individual membership or an organizational membership?

AEHIT membership is assigned to the individual at a healthcare provider or payer organization who applies and is approved. Membership is not for the organization itself and is not transferable from one individual to another.

What is the difference between AEHIT and the AEHIT Foundation?

AEHIT was created to support the professional needs of CTOs in healthcare. The AEHIT Foundation is a non-profit organization comprised of select healthcare Information Technology vendors and professional services firms. AEHIT Foundation members benefit from the unique opportunity to partner and collaborate with member CTOs. The support of the AEHIT Foundation allows AEHIT to provide its members with leading edge education, information, and networking opportunities. In return, AEHIT Foundation members have an unprecedented ability to connect with healthcare industry CTOs through AEHIT-sponsored education and events. For more information about the AEHIT Foundation, please visit the AEHIT Foundation section of our website.

Can I participate in AEHIT events and programs if I’m not a member?

Non-members cannot participate in any of our educational programs, networking events, or use any of our online services.
