Here’s Your Chance to Shine: 3 Projects to Earn Accolades at Summit

By Zach Donisch, Director of Membership, AEHIT 


The Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Technology (AEHIT) recently opened nominations for three IT project awards. AEHIT members and Foundation firms can nominate provider organizations who have delivered on innovative and challenging projects that represent transformation within healthcare. These awards recognize AEHIT member achievements within the healthcare IT space.

AEHIT Board Chair Matthew Werder sees the awards as a way to put a spotlight on excellence in the industry. “Although [information technology] is too often thought of as a back-office function, there are very few projects within healthcare that do not require IT,” he said. “I think it’s very important that CHIME and AEHIT, as the go-to associations for healthcare IT technology leaders, recognize the great work that leaders and executives in healthcare information technology produce.”

In its inaugural offering of awards, AEHIT offers three opportunities for organizations to recognize high performing teams.

  • The HIT Innovative Project of the Year award recognizes a healthcare delivery organization that has demonstrated value through innovation application of technology in support of strategic business objectives.

According to Werder, these three award categories are “well-balanced and cover all aspects of healthcare technology.”

“As new challenges enter healthcare, we will need to adapt our awards to recognize those that overcome those new roadblocks”, said Werder. “AEHIT will need to take into consideration member contributions in those areas. Internet of Things integration, for example, could be on the horizon for project recognition.”

The AEHIT IT Project Awards presentation ceremony will start at 9:30 a.m. Oct. 31 at the AEHIT Fall Summit in San Antonio, TX. Submit your nominations here before the deadline on Aug. 18 for an opportunity for recognition on a major project that advances the future of healthcare.
