AEHIT Fall Summit | October 30-31, 2017 | San Antonio, TX | JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa

  • AEHIT Fall Summit

    Spark discussion, shape your association – join us for the first annual 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 futureproofing 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.

    To learn from others in the industry and to keep our membership on pace with the warp speed of technological advances, AEHIT is pleased to announce our inaugural Fall Summit, open exclusively to AEHIT members.

    The 2017 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. We invite you to take part in this exciting event!
