The Healthcare Strategy Meeting is a discussion based gathering of information technology leaders from Health Systems and Hospitals from across the US.  This event is invite only and attendance is limited to CIOs, CTOs, CMIOs, and SVPs/ VPs of IT with varying responsibilities.


As opposed to a traditional conference setting with a speaker/ audience format, the “discussion group” environment demands group participation which leads to a sharing of ideas and experiences at multiple levels and stages of implementation.



Each CIO is engaged with and selects on average 2-3 vendors they want to meet with. Their selection is based solely on current or planned initiatives and interest in the service offerings of the attending vendors.
